Some people ARE making personal attacks against me. People should be answering my questions if they could, not arguing with me about my style when I insist that it's fine. Nobody knows what how well I'm able to deal with my own style but me. Not all programmers are created equal, and nobody even knows how well I structure my larger programs. I have a 3400 line script that works and I could only imagine the "rules" people are suggesting making it more difficult to develop.
Monks could comment on my style if they want, but to let it go on and on when I say my style works fine, especially for a small, working script that I'm maintaining myself, and to say there's a security problem when there isn't and that it's garbage and I shouldn't parse Perl and it shouldn't be a module when it works and that I should have took extra time scoping stuff instead of simply and quickly using reset is just wrong. These people should get back to the subject or stay out of the thread, and not think there's something wrong with me just because I'm not changing a style that works.
