    Then I just hit ^END and I'm there. (Unless I have a large __DATA__ section, in which case ^F__DATA__ takes me there.)

    The main advantages of subroutines at the top is that it avoids accidental closures and the need for pre-declarations for prototype checking.

    But I realise that it is a personal preference thing.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
