Why is this list called Perl best practices? Only 7, 11, 20 and maybe 18 is related to Perl. The rest is valid for any language.
They're all related to perl since perl is a programming language :)
Perhaps you meant specific to perl ?
But even if they look specific, they all really are generic
- 7. Perl is a powerful and expressive language, don't be afraid to use it to its maximum.
- write idiomatic code
- 11. Don't use an object when a simple hash or array will do.
- Don't use an object when a simple struct will do
- Don't use an object when a simple data structure will do
- 20. use strict, use warnings, selectively disable them when required.
- lint that mother hard, maximum warnings -Wall
- lint, "use strict";
- 18. Add lots of debugging code
- use assertions, use logging
