Comment on

( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I use two spaces - I find it readable, and sensible in most of the languages I use.

I use the tab key to put my two spaces there - It's convenient.

I put my braces on the same line as an 'if', and align the bottom brace with the opening statement - The braces make sense to me, and I'd deserved to have stones thrown at me by maintainers if I didn't align bottom braces.

I cuddle my elses - More code on screen, and they don't get lonely.

I comment rather heavily - I know Perl much better than those round me but would like them to at least be able to read it.

I insert spaces to pad out expressions as I see fit - More readable in my opinion, and with all that real-estate I saved by not doing 4-space I can afford to be frivilous.

I post meaninglessly long explanations of my coding style - But I don't insist you hear and obey.
