in thread where do you put your subs
Not when dealing with objects.
my $paco = $foo->bar;
Is this a scalar or a call to a class method with no paramaters? Let's sift through the code to find out, oh joy!
My main point is that subroutines are doing the majority of the work in a block of code. () at the end makes them stick out. Hi there! Being almost blind, I love having these handy little pointers in the code that I'm looking at. The fact that it the rule of law in other languages means that my subconsious is naturally drawn to them. Just because you can do something different than other languages doesn't mean that you have to.
update: I just knew that I would put my foot in my mouth when I start talking about OO perl. ++ to both responses. (I still hate it bareword methods. :-P)
