in reply to What's the biggest piece of work you've done alone with Perl?

Here is a list I've tried to live by...

  • Change Nothing
  • If you have to change it, make the smallest change possible
  • Make all changes in parallel---implement the new code and compare it's results with the previous
  • Change Nothing without a test to back it up with...
And if given a choice, it is often better to be lucky than good.

--hsm
