in thread marshalling data

Actually, both of the uses of braces are valid alternatives (one only for moderately modern versions of Perl) to the methods you proposed. You can write "package main; ..." or "package main { ... }" (as of some non-ancient Perl version) and you can do "print $FH ..." or "print {$FH} ..." (since at least Perl 3).

    Huh, interesting.
    Well I have to admit I've never seen it used before. Oh well, I guess I learn something new every day.
