It's best not to use too many global variable. (I know that's a funny
statement coming from the author of MIMEDefang, but hey... everyone makes
If you must use global variables, I recommend defining a function
use vars qw($GlobalVar1 $GlobalVar2); #etc
$GlobalVar1 = undef;
$GlobalVar2 = undef;
Instead of "undef", use whatever initial value makes sense. In fact,
MIMEDefang has an internal "init_globals" function that does something
Then be sure to call init_global_variables where appropriate.
