in thread Pearls (not really) of Perl programming

This is at the beginning of a script that I must have written shortly after I learned about use strict. I didn't really understand lexical scope, I just wanted the errors to go away. Can we say "missing the point"?
I'm still in the bad habit of doing this. I blame C for the habit.

    It's funny that you mention C - whenever I had to deal with it, I would always create additional blocks inside a func just to limit variable scope.
    int a() { { int a, b; ... } /* move on */ { int a, b, c; } }
    That did result in some excessive indentation though.
