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

As much as everyone complains about how bad "Matt's Scripts" are, I don't think they are that bad. At the very least they have,

  1. Documentation and notes near the code describing what it is supposed to do
  2. Its neat, easy to read.

I seen worse, the guy whose code that I took over in my last position had a 500 line if-elsif-else loop. No notes, no documentation, and a lot of it went beyond 100 characters per line (so I cannot even print it out to make it readable). That is BAD PERL CODE.

I will take the examples you gave over the stuff I had to maintain anyday!
