in thread My typing speed

Similarly, before I left Australia I could type over 70wpm. Now that I'm in Switzerland, it's dropped to around 40wpm. This is because I've had to adjust to three new keyboards in the meantime.

Some of the machines at work have 'German Keyboards' while my workstation has a 'Swiss German keyboard', my laptop has a 'UK keyboard' and the desktop I brought with me from Sydney has a 'US keyboard'. I keep having to look to find out where the $ sign and the Y key have gotten to.

[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 ?
[Eily]: if so, most subs start with my (VARIABLES) = @_ anyway
[moritz]: for short subs, I sometimes let them work on $_[0] directly
[Eily]: moritz but that should be fine unless you modify them
