( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Guys, this is not a big deal, but I cannot decide which is best. You know, I just want to be consistent in my code and when it comes to calling a subroutine from a reference, I have basically two options. Either:

  •  &{$ref}();
  •  $ref->();

As of now, I have always used the first one, but I think the second is more elegant, but at the same time could be confusing. What do you guys think?

There are no stupid questions, but there are a lot of inquisitive idiots.
