Well, I'm one of the people that use [] for qw. I very seldomly use () as delimiters; parenthesis already have a couple of meanings, using them as delimiters as well doesn't contribute to code clearity in my book.

My favourite delimiters are:

Operator Pref. Other Delim. Delims q, qq, qx {} <> // !! qw [] // {} <> s, m, qr // {} <> !! y, tr // [] {} <>
I never use '#' as a delimiter (althought it's popular with many people).

As you can see, all the delimiters I often use tend to be long, narrow, and mostly vertical.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr

    [Corion]: perldigious: That seems to be more the export and likely it's the recipients of that export that like the titles changes
    [Corion]: ... "changed"
    [Corion]: I usually expect fixed header names, but am sometimes lenient in the order of columns. But changing the report titles often sounds to me as if you are not the sole consument of the export ;)
    [shmem]: perldigious: as always - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Ther must be a very compelling reason for changing column names in a database. Those are rare.
    [Corion]: If you have whitespace in the column names in the database, whap the DBAs ;)
    [shmem]: It's common for some vendors to have column names such as WRSTVG or some other such whizzbang, and another table where these names are mapped to something meaningful depending on how you look at the data
