in reply to What does WOOF mean in Perl?

WOOF is nothing .. WOOF_END is a here-doc tag. The actual words can be anything but how it's (or isn't) quoted affects variable interpolation of the here-doc.

    Well, WOOF is the sound a dog makes--at least, American cartoon dogs.

    Here's a more specific link to the documentation.

      Ha! That's funny. I wonder if the original author or an early maintainer was commenting on the use of heredocs for CGI output!
