I have really come to enjoy the ideas and syntax offered by the P5EE Style Guide.

In the guide, they offer this for plural vs singular variable naming conventions:
--- Arrays and hashes should be plural nouns, whether as regular arrays and hashes or array and hash references. Do not name references with ``ref'' or the data type in the name. @stories = (1, 2, 3); # right $comment_ref = [4, 5, 6]; # wrong $comments = [4, 5, 6]; # right $comment = $comments->[0]; # right ---
By consistantly using a system like this throughout your programs, there won't have to be question about whether a scalar contains something like a string, or if it's a reference to an array or hash. As the guide suggests, references would be named in a plural fashion.

FWIW, I'm now using (or at least attempting to) this guide for all of my programming habits :-) Have fun,

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
