in thread Up for Critique

Because I was not familiar with $/ and had to look it up. :-)

Seriously, since this code was written to be looked at by other (non-Perl) types, I figured the long name would help.

Now if it seriously causes performance problems, then by all means use $/, but comment what you are doing. And using local to scope the change is a good idea.

BTW, that was my first post to Perl Monks.
