All files included via use or require must end with a true value to indicate to the caller that the include was successful. The standard practice is to conclude your .pm files with 1;, but some authors like to get clever and return some other true value like return "Club sandwich";. We cannot tolerate such frivolity! OK, we can, but we don't recommend it since it confuses the newcomers.
