I'd been having fits lately (since upgrading to an XP machine) with Perl syntax errors involving braces versus parens. Problem was, there was about a one-pixel difference between them, and I had to take my glasses off and get real close just to see what I had typed. It was a real drag on productivity. 'Turns out, I had been defaulted to Courier New under XP, where I had used Courier before on the Win98 box. Switching back to Courier made all the difference in the world. But now colons and semicolons look too much alike! So, Monks, what are your font preferences for editing scripts? There must be something better than the Courier family!
