Please clean up this code at least to the point where it's
strict-clean, which means putting "use strict;" right after the
shebang line and not checking it in until it runs that way.
I tried, but couldn't make heads or tails of the thing, given all the
unused- and similarly-named variables, failure to indent, etc. I
don't know how to put this gently, but if you checked in C code with
quality like this, you'd have it bounced with derision.
I'd also like to propose that "strict clean" be a minimum code quality
metric for any Perl code in our code base. A lot of what's in there
is just about impossible to maintain.
