    Then I just hit ^END and I'm there. (Unless I have a large __DATA__ section, in which case ^F__DATA__ takes me there.)

    The main advantages of subroutines at the top is that it avoids accidental closures and the need for pre-declarations for prototype checking.

    But I realise that it is a personal preference thing.
