in thread subroutine prototypes still bad?

I think it depends on what you are used to. I recently had to write some Java code, and I found myself putting 'return' statements outside of try/catch, even though it's fine in Java.

Since I use mostly Perl, this behavior does not confuse me at all.

    To me, that sounds like you're doing somthing so dangerous that you won't even do it in a language where it's safe in fear of getting it wrong in Perl.
      I was just making a point about being used to things. C programmers are used to allocating memory by hand, for instance. It's just a matter of what the language gives you.
