    [Discipulus]: ovedpo15 A subroutine may be called using an explicit & prefix. The & is optional in modern Perl... see perlsub in docs and search for ampersand
    [Discipulus]: it has some, even dangerous, implication
    [Discipulus]: I still use but I also attract many critics for this: I use when I call subs defined in the very same file, just to recognize them. You can avoid (but sometimes is needed)
    [marto]: believe it or not this is a SPAM account :P
    [Discipulus]: it seems a legitimate one.. grin ..
