I've found whole blocks of code like that - thousand character strings stuck in a variable only the variable is never called for anywhere at all.<br /><br />I think that many of these actually date to before the introduction of YaBBC.pl as the values stored in these unused variables (language references and javascript) are used in YaBBC. It started as 2.6.2 http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1452961401 YaBB Development & Mods/road http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1452961401 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Dandello) Tue, 6 Sep 2016 16:05:20 GMT Added Smilies are now stored as a hash in Settings.pm instead of 4 separate arrays. <br /><br />While not in the SVN, I now have Admin/Admin.pm and Admin/Backup.pm running under the 'strict' pragma on my testbed server. (Currently this involves moving away from using 'fopen' and 'fclose' as those violate the rule against using 'bareword filehandles'. I am still researching as to whether or not the file locking mechanisms in fopen and fclose are even necessary with more modern versions of Perl and modern server software.)<br /><br />Admin.pm may end up getting split into parts - it contains a lot of pieces that are infrequently accessed. Moving those out should make the AdminCenter load faster.
