The perlsub man page mentions localization of $_ in the "When to Still Use local()" section, and says:

In particular, it's important to "local"ize $_ in any routine that assigns to it. Look out for implicit assignments in "while" conditionals.

With all due respect, both you and the authors of the modules you mention are ignoring the sound advice offered in the Perl documentation and should consider making the appropriate changes to make your code "play well with others".

    [Eily]: what, there's a difference between proof of concept and production?
    [LanX]: 20 years ago traders were complaining about the latency of the trading system...
    [ambrus]: I'm currently in the process of rewriting my proof of concept programs. They sort of developped organically as I was experimenting, so now I've got an ugly mess of multiple programs and one-liners held together by nothing. I'll have to rewrite them to som
