Although use strict; is highly recommended [...] in this case, the behaviour would be identical to that observed [...]

Hi Bloodnok. If you add use strict; to the program from the OP then you get errors for the undeclared variables. After you add 'my' to declare them as lexical variables you get an error 'Can't use global $1 in "my" at C:\path\ line 7, near "my $1 ".'

Edit: Here are some discussions about using the strict pragma. Use strict and warnings, strict,, Why We Use Strict!,
