I missed one of your questions, apologies:

Significance of "my": It has a measurably distinguished behavior distinct from "our". Most notably useful in Modules.

Pay attention to the value of $TRUE in the sample:

This is

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; package t2; # -------------------------------------------------------------------- +---------- # Constants (Operationally, if not technically) # -------------------------------------------------------------------- +---------- our $RET_SUCCESS = 0; our $RET_FAILURE = (-1); our $RET_FATAL = (-2); my $TRUE = 1; my $FALSE = 0; # -------------------------------------------------------------------- +---------- # version() - Returns the version number of this module # -------------------------------------------------------------------- +---------- sub version { return sprintf "0.10a"; } # -------------------------------------------------------------------- +---------- # Perl modules MUST return true # -------------------------------------------------------------------- +---------- 1; __END__

This is

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use t2; print "our: \$t2::RET_FAILURE = '$t2::RET_FAILURE'\n"; print " my: \$t2::TRUE = '$t2::TRUE'\n"; exit; __END__
