in reply to Re^2: return !!
in thread return !!

ikegami,
I was speaking to the idiom not this specific example. For instance return $foo; where $foo is the contents of a large file. I also am not sure I agree that the author of the sub can be sure that the caller of the sub would be calling it in scalar context - making the explicit scalar useful.
