in thread Static Data ("__DATA__" vs. "our")

Another common problem I've seen with usage of __DATA__ in modules is using while(<DATA>) without localizing $_ (see while(<>) { ... } considered harmful why it is bad).

Update: Actually $_ should not be used in modules at all. See this bug report why.
