Actually, I disagree. The provided code is actually visually very helpful, as it leads (mind you, leads, not misleads) the reader to think that bar() makes sense in the context of foo().

From OOP we know that Perl doesn't protect methods and variables. Perl would much rather that you didn't come into its home uninvited than put locks on its doors. The reader of the code should simply not call bar() from outside foo().

That said, the suggestion to convert bar() into an anonymous sub is a good one. That makes things even clearer.

    Corion idly wonders about creating a series of HTTP requests. There seems to be no framework to generate a series of HTTP requests, like "try all these requests"
    [Corion]: This is vaguely inspired by that list of "nasty" strings, which I'd like to replace among HTTP parameters, just to see whether the application crashes, but also for easy downloading of a list of URLs etc
    [Corion]: Maybe I'll just conoct something using Algorithm::Permute to create an (OO) generator for such requests, or a simple function.
    [Corion]: For testing I imagine one would want to test a random sampling of such "bad"/"unexpected" requests, while for downloading, one would want to generate them all in order, but not necessarily as a huge list
