in reply to organizing program structure

i've been told i shouldn't use subroutines in perl programs

Kind of unusual advice.  Maybe whoever said so was a fan of object oriented structuring and wanted to make a distinction between normal procedural suboutines and object methods?

Anyhow, feel free to use them as you see fit.

Or, in executive summary style:  subroutines are good, goto is bad ;)
