in thread Does eval cause that much of a performance hit?

I was teasing. I use trailing if, although only in certain circumstances:

  • it fits on one line without any obfuscation and
  • it's an interrupt, like a next or return.

But the flaw I pointed out with "my...if" is serious and scary and everyone should be aware of it.

    I apologise for missing the humour. And you're right about "my..if".
