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

I've also been reading and enjoying the book. However, I have been going through and making sweeping changes in the codebase I am currently working on. Why isn't my stuff breaking? Because I am only changing one thing at a time and I'm running the tests after every change.

I can feel confident that I am not hurting anything and I'm very confident that some of the tricky bits in my code are much easier to understand. The poor programmers who will have to go in and maintain my code may not notice it, but they would certainly have noticed some of the things that were in there before.

In fact, I've committed my .perltidy.rc file to the code base to ensure that programmers who follow me will find it easy to at least maintain consistent formatting.

Cheers,
Ovid

    [oakbox]: Anyone else having difficulty looking at search.cpan.org?
    [oakbox]: I keep getting a proxy error.
    [marto]: try http://metacpan. org/
    [marto]: I can't access search.cpan right now either. I prefer the metacpan search and general formatting anyway. Also it seems faster
    [oakbox]: Yeah, the front page of cpan.org uses metacpan.org now for search results
