|Do you know where your variables are?|
Dump the "&" in front of subroutine calls.
What is the reason for this? Does this make some sort of difference?
If you're using a hash, then use the hash:
I hate stuff like this. Assigning variables to hash values, IMHO, should only be done if you have some really complex data structures, and even then, I believe you should use some sort of interpolation, lest you continue to de-ref every time you access something
I'm not positive what you're refering to here. Is it just that I should use the hash in my code as opposed to assigning the hash values to a variable and then using the variable instead?
If you're printing to STDOUT in various places, set $|=1; Otherwise, push everything onto an array, and just dump the whole array when you're done
What exactly does the $|=1 do?
Thanks for the suggestions.
