"Perl gurus recommend making variables available with the smallest possible declared scope"
in reply to RE (tilly) 1: redeclaring variables with 'my'
in thread redeclaring variables with 'my'
Why is that? Is it for efficiency reasons or mainly for organization and readability purposes?
I tend to predeclare all my variables at the top of the file so they are listed in one place. I find it much easier to keep track of my variables that way. I guess I got into that habbit during my Pascal and C days.
