in reply to cleaning up code with "do" ?

That says that subs in your file cannot participate in lexical closures with variables in the including file. Big packages often have such closures, and subs imported with do will fail. Make sure all subs get all their parameters from arguments passed to them.

My own practice is to only do for subs like those and for a single configuration hashref as the return value for the file when done.

my $config = do "$ENV{HOME}/.foobarc";

[aitap]: usemodperl: maybe it's you who has changed
[marto]: demonstrably yes, since you claim to want a safe space, your definition for which seems to be a place where you can name call, make things up or otherwise post without being challenged
[usemodperl]: no that's not it at all, meant safe for perl people, to not be hounded by weirdos obsessed with things like... whitespace :-)
