    You know, you can reduce the level of indentation (thus making it easier to read (IMHO, of course)) of this sub by using elsif:

    sub whatisit{ my $it = shift; if ($it eq 'yada yada'){ return(undef); } elsif ($it eq 'get in a car accident') { return("vincinity of 38.86540N 77.07163W"); } elsif ($it eq 'write perl script'){ return ('kitchen'); } else{ return(\&email(zak)); } }

    I know this is pretty trivial code, but...
