Either make it native Perl, or don't write it in Perl.
It's also broken as Perl. You return from the middle of the subroutine that sets $", but you don't reset it! That breaks the rest of the program. Use
this instead (if you must):
Then no matter what exit you take, the caller's value of $" is preserved.
