in reply to Coding superstitions

I"m a bit of a $retval fan. Whenever one of my (or perls) functions returns something important in the context of my subbie, it gets stored in $retval or @retval and for some strange reason %rethash. Terribly inconsistant I know. Perhaps its because i'm worried it will bring me bad luck if i dont.. ;-)

I also like doing my if..then..elsif..else loops like:
if ($stuff) { } elsif ($otherstuff) { } else { }
