in reply to where do you put your subs

This is simply a matter of taste, IMHO. But, I have no "main" code, per se. rather..

#!perl use strict; use Modules; main(); sub main { #main algorithm, calls to other subs } sub1 {#sub code} sub2 {#sub code} etc..

I find this method to be extremely helpful in having variables with a limited scope. Just say "NO" to globals.

    I like to do
    #!/usr/bin/perl -w exit main(); sub main { ... return (0); }
    Maybe I'm just a C programmer at heart.



    1. dude, what does mine say?
    2. "sweet", what about mine?
    3. "dude", what does mine say?
    4. GOTO 2
      The code-flow is not really logical: why do you exit before performing your tasks? Is there any reason to have the exit statement before the sub declaration?

      And real C programmers at heart write some for (;;) instead of ... 4 GOTO 2 :)
