( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
1. I think you're reading too much into my statement about @_ and $_. My point was really that using named variables is usually more clear (to me at least) than using no variable, relying in the default of either $_ or @_ in the function. Call it TIMTOWDI, call it style, but that's how I do it.

Oh, and I definitely am NOT a "non-Perl programmer trying to hack at Perl". I've been coding Perl for 10 years now. It was my first programming language and remains my primary language to this day. Don't assume noobness just because someone's coding style is different than yours.

2. Thank you. Old habit.

3. There is need for the declarations under the strict pragma. I initialize when I declare as a matter of habit, to avoid "uninitialized" warnings. I also like giving all variables default values as another matter of personal style.

4. I wasnt aware that line wasn't blazar-approved. I'll stop using it immediately. :) Seriously though, my coding style is situational. Since DATA is tiny in this case, I used that style. If you have a recommendation for the "newbies", you might want to actually write out some alternate code instead of just calling mine wrong and leaving it at that. That doesn't help anyone, does it?

5. Again, old habit. It does no harm except take an extra quarter-second to type.
