in reply to Help authors to help themselves; don't consider the small stuff

I agree that short code fragments like

print "hello";

is not so ugly that it deserves janitoring, but what's with

print $hellotext1;

?

    Indeed I'd consider this, because it seems an hazard to navigation: neither 1 nor 1 seem to have anything to do with $hellotext...

    Update: This doesn't mean that one shouldn't follow the "message the author first" approach, of course.

    Flavio (perl -e 'print(scalar(reverse("\nti.xittelop\@oivalf")))')

    Don't fool yourself.
