|Then the first part of refactoring is to bitchslap the original developer....
I dont have to contribute to CPAN to have an opinion, cockhead.
No, you don't. I used the example of my module on CPAN so as to:
- Demonstrate the issue isn't just with legacy code (I still actively maintain PDF::Template)
- Demonstrate the issue using my own personal code, saying everyone suffers from a lack of knowledge (the code was written over 2 years ago) and tuits (I have been focusing on other work and haven't written the 500+ tests needed)
How do you 'know' it works ? It isnt tested.
Wrong - it's "tested" over 25,000 times a day. In other words, I 'know' it works because that's what it does - work. I know the 60% that's covered works, too. I am not comfortable with that, so I will be adding more and better tests to the regression suite.
Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.
