in reply to Why is 'our' good?

Coming from a C background, I rarely use "global" variables. When I do, I use our because (1) the syntax is simpler, and (2) I can initialize the variable where it's defined. Also, I use it where use vars would be used. while I can see some value in using our in an inner scope, it's not something I've needed to do myself.
