in thread Perl Cipher & questions on semantics/layout optimisation.

I sure as an experienced and competent programmer you have no need for help from the dumb computer, but for me tools such as strictures, a good IDE and unit tests make me an order of magnitude more productive with much greater confidence in my work.
I sometimes find "strict," "perl -w," and Emacs's syntax highlighting helpful. I also understand what they do. Mindlessly chanting "use strict;\nuse warnings;\n\n" at people doesn't teach them anything.

[ozboomer]: Howdy, all.. Trying this once more... Not really a perl question :(... but I don't know how to even title my query (more...)
[ozboomer]: There's a text file with lots of sections in it, like an '.ini/.conf' file. Each section can be 'used' or 'unused' by its application (more...)
[ozboomer]: Some folk want to use the text file as 'storage', keeping ALL items in it (a database); others call it an 'active document' that should only contain 'in-use' sections. Is there a 'good practice' for this sort of thing?
