in reply to I use return on a subroutine

As an old C/C++ coder, I probably use it more as a reflex than anything else. But I almost always use return

    Yeah. I tend to use it more often then I don't. It makes the code more readable if you explicitly state what you are returning. But if my routine only returns an error state or the return value is irrelevant then I don't use return. (Its not like Perl knows about void functions)
