Re: 78/80 chars perl line still a meaningful rule

in reply to 78/80 chars perl line still a meaningful rule

I try to keep my line short, but I am not going to cut my line in two if it is a bit longer then 80 characters. I would if it is a very long IF or WHILE statement with lots of conditions, or if I populate a HashRef with data, but that's it.

There are no stupid questions, but there are a lot of inquisitive idiots.

    Don't hate the player hacker, hate the game code base.

    Update: this is in ref to node #10x6 which was snatched by squatting on the URI: http://perlmonks.org/?parent=999999;node_id=3333. Update 2: thinko; s/player/game/.

      Your Mother:

      Gratz! You have the winning node!
