Aye, the &subroutine; style is optional in any modern perl. I can't recall what version that changed in, but it was a fairly long time ago.

    I suppose using the & was helpful to me also because it let me know when I was calling something i had personally created, versus calling a builtin function or something from another module...
      Calling it with the ampersand disables the function's prototype. That's one reason to avoid using the ampersand.
