in thread When is $_ local and when is it not?

Yes, I think it should work that way. Then you can write code like:
sub next_foo { while (<>) { return $. if /^FOO:/ } } while (next_foo) { do_something # with $_ }
Some people won't like this style. That's fine, you don't have to. Other will like it, and Perl let's you.

[cbeckley]: I have a functioning module I use to spawn sets of commands across multiple servers.
[cbeckley]: It's nascent, and probably looks like baby Perl to the veterans.
[cbeckley]: I have several questions about it's future development. But it seems like a lot of code to put in a sopw.
[cbeckley]: Should I put the module and example calling code in cufp, and then ask questions in sopw?
