in reply to Restricting a scalar to certain values

Thanks jakeease and Anonymous for the feedback so far! I just thought I'd clarify: Yes, it's a bit like an enum - the thing is though that I'd like to retrofit some older scripts that already use a scalar as an enum. It'd be an advantage if I could just add a line at the top saying "restrict this scalar to this set of allowed values" to protect against future typos instead of updating every place where the scalar is used.

[Tanktalus]: perldigious: I'm not looking to get rich. I'm looking for interesting work, with good continuity of employment, and maintenance of our current lifestyle. (An improvement wouldn't be bad, either, but that's not a requirement ;) )

[Tanktalus]: Without confusion, I'd be out of a job ;)
[Tanktalus]: Already. :D
[Lady_Aleena]: Your Mother, I wish it did have a way to put in a directory to search.
[Your Mother]: Thatís silly. Itís a string op tool.
[Lady_Aleena]: So I guess I'll go argue with File::Find and grep.
[Your Mother]: I would probably use Path::Tiny instead for it's slurp and such.
[Your Mother]: s/it's/its/
