When modifying special variables, it's a good idea to localize them and shorten the scope.

See perlvar

I was thinking of $/

    If you are talking about $_ in the handler, it _is_ localized (and set) by XML::Twig, so no worries there.

      I think its $/ from
      undef $/; my $XML = <DATA>;

        Oh yeah, I missed that one. It's obviously only there for the code example though. I hope the OP doesn't store the real data in the DATA section of the code!
