You're right! I looked at this post and they mentioned using single quotes when no interpolation of variables is needed. They also mentioned that this is a matter of personal preference. This probably would be good practice, but in my use, I'm not sure if it makes that big a difference. I wonder how much of a time difference single quotes vs. double quotes makes? Either way, thanks for the suggestion.

    Running this code:
    use Benchmark qw(cmpthese); cmpthese(10000000, { single => sub {$foo = 'http://www.yoursite.com'}, double => sub {$foo = "http://www.yoursite.com"}, });
    produces these results on my machine:
    Rate double single double 2865330/s -- -2% single 2915452/s 2% --
    So it looks like single quotes may be slightly faster, but that may be within the margin of error. I generally use single quotes unless I need interpolation of variables, but it's probably just a matter of preference.
