Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 041 Here Documents
The PBP tells us to use here documents when a multi line string is too long. It suggests two lines is long enough for a single string, and anything longer should be a here document. Here documents are a useful feature of Perl. I think they were stole [...]
