in thread Favorite Descriptive Variable Name

I've occasionally punned with variable names. One I like (and I forget where I first saw it) was %cornedbeef. (corned beef hash). I've been do to do { ... } until $cows_come_home; or { ... } until $hell_freezes_over; for nigh-endless loops.

When I'm not being creative, I find myself occasionally using junk variables like $stuff, $stuf, $stuph, $morestuff, $yetmorestuff, $evenmorestuff, $toomuchstuff, so on and so forth.

    When calling the function phish() or moe(), I'll often pass the %|. Especially because I don't need it. ;)

      Oh man, you should be stoned to death for that one... Also, I was happy to see that the hippy spirit is alive in perl, perl -we 'my %|;' =)

      $you = new YOU;
      honk() if $you->love(perl)
