in reply to Perl code - sometimes UGLY...

Get a decent editor that color-codes program source. TextPad, and UltraEdit are a couple of examples.

    Too true. But when I'm on the go, reading a printout, yes I do that, it does not help.


      • Get the editor to print its syntax colouring (or dump colouring to html) and print in colour
      • Get a highlighter and do it manually. Added bonus: it'll be done just the way you want it and you'll know up to where you've read.

      Ok, dump Perl and try Lisp ;-)

LanX wouldn't update system Perl!
[Discipulus]: prathap keerthipati might be it is better to install an alternative Perl instead and do not touch the system one
[LanX]: see perlbrew for alternative Perl installations
[marto]: unless you know exactly what you're doing an often saner option is to simply build another Perl rather than replace the system one
