in reply to Best Perl Practices reviews?

Yes, I have it, and I also have the older "Effective Perl Programming". I actually found PBP easier to read but bioth are useful. It has been pointed out that EPP is somehwat dated now, but still valuable.

thedamian, as an academic, has a very different style and one with which I am more comfortable. As others have said, he perhaps contrives things a little to get his point across, but that is what he does all day!

As for making me a better coder? Yes, it has made me rethink a number of practices, and whilst not following all his prescriptions, I can understand why he propsed them.
