One way to write good code quickly is to not have to write
it. Some of my strategies are:
- import modules and use their code.
- have a well-stocked/sorted library of code snippets,
useful subroutines, and templates.
- use a good editor and configure lots of perl syntax
My feelings of being somewhat "fast enough" coincided with
gaining a level of fluency in the language that allows
some thinking according to it's rules leading to activities
like coding working programs with pen and paper. As with
any learned skill you have to do a lot of slow and
thoughtful work to gain the skills required for competent
and speedy execution.
