for me good code means what was already mentioned but also to have good structured code. Don't use to much subs, but try to give it a structure which also helps to make it reusable. If it's getting big think about putting parts of the code you might want to use again in a small module etc...
Also learn to have a strict an clean style, which you always use and not change to often. I personally prefer to have a more K&R-styled style than the usual perl-style...
Also only use tabs for indenting and not for lining up stuff etc. Have a look at perltidy
if you can't manage to have a strict style yourself.
