I found myself using glob and readline (the words) more and more. Not only to avoid some annoying problems with the shared angle bracket syntax, but also because I think it's clearer. I also tend to use qx() instead of backticks, and and or instead of && and || (not only for precendence reasons), etcetera.
How do you feel about this? Do you think <*.txt> is better than glob '*.txt'? Is <$handle> prefered over readline $handle? And what about backticks: do you think ' and ` look different enough to use backticks?
I'd like to know how other monks think about this TIMTOWTDI/style thing :)
