Hmm using constants for that isn't really needed though :)

Yep, you could use scalars aswell here or even real values.
However, I normally find the last version most confusing.

Saying if(WEDNESDAY < $X) is better then if(3 < $X) isn't it?
At least you know where the 3 stands for (although replacing $X by $day might give you a hint Wink)

About that constant, I never knew that. However, it might improve readability for beginners. Saying sub WEDNESDAY(){3} isn't that clear. use constant is. It's your choice off course.Smile

However, my file i've been using in my forum scripts also uses the sub(){} notation you preffer. Creating 400 inline subroutines is quite faster then processing 400 imports that generate 400 inline subroutines. Shocked
