where mstone does this...
@list = ( 'item one', 'item two', 'item three', ## <- unnecessary punctuation );
mrbbking does this...
@list = ( 'item one' ,'item two' ,'item three' );
I picked up this particular habit from some IBM Mainframe DBAs. With the comma on the same line as the thing that comes after it, I can comment out any line of the array assignment and the whole thing is still syntactically valid. I like to keep things as clean as I can. my code anyhow. My office is a pig sty.

...wait a minute... if mstone can get away with an extra trailing comma, then I guess I could comment out the last line of the assigment, and the trailing comma wouldn't cause a problem... this is all in my head... Oh, boy...
