in reply to Re^3: local vs my
in thread local vs my

Do not confuse file scoped lexicals such as my and our can declare with package scoped globals

And do not confuse variables declared with our as anything other than the same package globals as those declared with 'use vars' or accessed by full package name. The only difference is in the scope of the unqualified access! In particular, our does not involve lexical variables at all.
