in reply to poll ideas quest 2010

The use pragma I would most like to see added to perl is:

  • use indentation;
  • use readable;
  • use maintainable;
  • use varable_names_that_make_sense;
  • use regexp_tutorial_node_visited_before_asking_question;
  • use check_search.cpan.org_for_better_solution;
  • use CowboyNeal;

    I upped it for the fun factor, but my gut wanted to downvote as it included CowboyNeal, which always triggers a yuck-feeling, and wants me to be able to not only up-vote (select) a choice, but also down-vote a choice in a list of picks.

    Any of these pragmas would be needed forcable by perltidy and PBP checks. Scripts that use cowboy-neal like pragmas can then be safely removed from the file system.

    I humbly suggest you include use telepathy;.

        Closer to the answer to a frequent SoPW question: "Why doesn't this work like I want it to?"

        "Have you tried use telepathy;?"

        Alas, the poll asks about pragmas, whereas Acme::ESP is a module. A no-doubt useful module, but unfortunately not applicable here.

        As for telepathy, I typically recoil at the introduction of the paranormal into software. After all, with this pragma, more and more programs might end up just being

        use strict; use warnings; use telepathy;
        There would also be the temptation to add use babbage_spirit_channeling;. Enough of these and few if any non-pragma statements would ever be necessary. In the interest of job-security, these 'enhancements' should be avoided at all costs. I have already sent a note to the Perl6 development team to drop any plans to include a 'virtual ouija board' into the core system.

        However, I do recognize those that embrace a spiritual/mystical aspect to programming, and would be more than willing to add with the_tao;, which would croak if the program lacked balance and harmony, based on the Tao. I have it on good authority that zentara has already hacked this into the version of perl he uses
