over any of your alternatives above. Now you might wonder how I handle strict. Fact is I don't. I don't have stricture enabled until I have done the assignment to $VERSION and other globals I don't plan to type again.
being able to localise access to scary things like globals to just where I need them
Just a clarification. I've seen people declare the same variable twice but one should not do
to avoid access to $foo inside &bar. Use some other scope trick for that if it's needed. One misses a great point of having the declaration if one does it more than once for the same variable.
See perltoc if you don't know which perldoc to read!
