I think moron's OP is reasonably argued and well written, so I think it deserves up votes.

On the other hand, I disagree with the necessity or even desirability of enforcing perltidy's standards. Part of this is that I don't like perltidy's defaults; part of it is that the code's physical layout can give clues about the poster's thinking.



Any New York City or Connecticut area jobs? I'm currently unemployed.

There are some enterprises in which a careful disorderliness is the true method.
