in reply to Monk's quips

it came up at work...
perl is my hammer; i shall not be screwed.
or from YAPsalms:

Stricture is my shepherd, I shall be warned.

It maketh me to declare my variables and leadeth me away from unclear references.

It restoreth my good habits: it leadeth me in the paths of righteouness for my sanity's sake.

Yea, though I code through the VPN with latency and dropped packets, I will fear no typos: for thou art with me; strict vars and strict subs they cover me.

Thou preparest my webpage in the presence of mod_php; thou anointest my module with interoperability; my plate is full.

Surely goodness and accuracy shall work with me in all the scripts of my life, and I will use strict in the house of perl forever.

[GotToBTru]: late to the conversation .. but thanks, Corion, for the reminder about Perl::Tidy
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Heh ;) I'm not really endorsing it, as I found that any gains made through it are easily squandered by the hours spent on configuring it. At least in my case :)
[GotToBTru]: Like most Swiss Army Knives, you can cut yourself trying to find the blade you actually want
[GotToBTru]: i am satisfied with the default settings turning the seemingly random formatting into something reliable
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Yeah, I started a quick(ly implemented but slowly running) implementation of a program that would guess the "best" configuration (that is, least amount of changes) from my code, but then found that it stops parsing the source as soon as it ..
[GotToBTru]: sadly, it can't do anything about this
[Corion]: ... encounters sub foo($bar,$baz) {, which is something I like nowadays
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Yeah, that stuff is hard to do away automatically ;)
