in reply to Never, never, never

I do my best to never, never, never, say "never, never, never". I prefer to say things like "you should only use stuff like that if you know why it is that people say you shouldn't use stufflike that." :-)

For instance you should only use prototypes if you understand why its usually bad to use prototypes.

    I try that too, but I always, always, always seem to fail :-)

[Eily]: It can also be used to force a copy, and remove magic from a variable
[Eily]: there was a post some time ago about variable coming from regex taking more space than the same string defined directly IIRC
[Eily]: and if there's XS, make sure the scalar holds a string representation, that sounds like bad practice though (forcing that on the call side)
[choroba]: You should never pass $1 without double quotes to a sub
[choroba]: or "I should never", at least
[choroba]: that's not the sub's business
[Eily]: choroba but does $name = $1 solve the issue ?
