in reply to 'our' is not 'my'

Good points, Ovid. ++! Personally, the only time I use our is in the following:

use 5.6.0; use strict; use warnings; package Foo; use Exporter; our @ISA = qw(Exporter); our @EXPORT_OK = qw(bar baz); # Code down here, including bar() and baz()
That way, I get to have the warmfuzzy feeling that I'm not using ickypoo globals, but, instead, using package-scoped globals. @ISA needing to be a global is why I even bother with our.

/me wants to be the brightest bulb in the chandelier!
