Hello Monks,

I have been searching about for how to declare a variable, ranging from SuperSearch to just using the search function, and have not found an article or node that may satisfy my curiosity.

What I wish to know was that I came across another post on this node of Seekers of Perl Wisdom that looked like this:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use warnings; CheckAllPairs(); CheckAllPairs(); sub CheckAllPairs{ my $abs_time_res=50; my $max_peak_time=2050; my $subj_num; my $region; my $region1; my $region2; my $time; my $peaks; my @act_list1; my @act_list2; my $i; my $j; my $key; my $delta; my %map; my $start_A; my $end_A; my $start_B; my $end_B; my @region_list = (1..38); my @main_subjects_list = (1..38);

I was wondering if this is a good example of declaring variables at the beginning of a script, which, in this case, also uses the recommended USE STRICT call at the beginning of this example snippet?

As always, thank you, and I think when all is said and done, I may be creating a FOR BEGINNERS section if I'm not careful.
