Thank you for the help.
I will have to disagree with you on variable naming convention though. Because perl does not have a rule for variable naming conventions in the language and this is internal code I use a convention that helps me explain what the variable is quickly. I use multiple words that describe the data as exact as possible. I use capitals to keep multiple words from blurring instead of underscores. Now if I wanted this to be a module for CPAN I would use the perl style guide. And I would simplify the variables to be few and one worders, so all lowercase.
And I do have comments to explain variable so this is a bit overkill but when you are staring at chunks of code a good variable name will save you the second window that is stuck at your table of variable definitions.
But I think this would be more of a meditation than a discussion on a question.
