in thread sub and anonymous sub

I am far away from being a mighty Perl hacker, but I've done recursion depth counting this way all the time. It's "cleaner" because you don't have to understand Perl-specific techniques. And it's thread-safe, too? Cool ;) Didn't know that... But why keep the curly brackets?
sub recurse { my ($depth) = @_; print +(" .") x $depth . "current depth:$depth\n" ; recurse($depth + 1) if $depth < 3; print +(" .") x $depth . "current depth:$depth\n" ; } recurse(-1);
This is the same, right? Additionally, I would start with recurse(0);
