Humm, don't forget that Perl uses a special variable @_ for the arguments. What you can't forget is that this array @_ is global, but it's elements will change for each call. So, the performance of @_ will be similar to a global variable, but will work as a stack, so, will work for multiple calls of the same sub and recursivelly.

This code will show that:

sub test1 { ++$_[0] ; print "T1 [@_]\n" ; test2($_[0]) ; } sub test2 { ++$_[0] ; print "T2 [@_]\n" ; test3($_[0]) ; } sub test3 { ++$_[0] ; print "T3 [@_]\n" ; print "end\n" ; } my $n = 10 ; test1($n) ; print "N: $n\n" ;
T1 [11] T2 [12] T3 [13] end N: 13
And forget the use of a global variable for any type of code and start learning OO. Take a look at perlobj, perltoot, perlboot and perltooc.

For Object Orientation (OO) I use Class::HPLOO.
