( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
As a matter of "good programming practice", I always state an explicit return, like "return 1;", or "return $status_code;" to make it easier for the programmers that will follow on from me. As well, when a subroutine is performing a task with a number of tests - say a data validation exercise - having a return after each failure avoids incredible messy code. Ken

in thread I use return on a subroutine by vroom

    [choroba]: having problems with www.perlmonks.org again, removing the www helped
    [choroba]: but pm-cb-g works well with it :) so it's only firefox (maybe one of the machines has problems and firefox somehow caches the connection?)
    [choroba]: hm... seems ok again
    [Corion]: At least back in the day Firefox (well, Netscape) used to cache the DNS itself because there was no OS API to asynchronously resolve names (?) Maybe that code still lives on
