in reply to Using Global Variables in Perl

I don't want to $readMode by way of a subroutine
Why not?

Global variables are evil. OO is the way to go.

Unless I state otherwise, my code all runs with strict and warnings

    I guess by that logic I should convert all my little procedural syadmin perl scripts to OO? ;-)

    I'm more of a proponent of the "Right Tool for the Right Job"... :) It depends on what you're building.

      I honestly don't suggest or condone the use of global variables in this aspect... If you have the time to write out $varname you have the ability to just hard code >> << > < also like to point out your variable names are already identifyers it really needs to be just standard variables in this case however an option for global shared variables in the $_ENV in perl to control global variables over your filehandle multiplexing codes.
