    I didn't think perl had _rules_, just warning signs? Leastwise, that's what I read in perldoc and the Camel.

      The rules in question were rules for good programming practices, sometimes Perl specific (eg using strict), and sometimes not (eg avoid goto). If you break these rules, Perl won't hunt you down and kill you, but your maintainance programmers might. :-)
