|Perl: the Markov chain saw|
Corion and chromatic showed me what?
You are partly right about tobyink -- but even with the spelling corrected the module he suggested didn't compile on 5.14 on my system. Chromatic's showed me that he could tell me to split my 1 program into 20-30 separate files -- which would be pretty clear -- wasn't something I was about to do -- I want to use small classes, some maybe 5-7 lines long to define typed data, I don't want to separate each class definition out into a a separate file. It wouldn't work for me.
Only when a module is *stable* -- and not being developed any more, and is called for in multiple programs, is it time, IMO, to split it out into it's own module.
Otherwise it adds unnecessary complexity.. Corion went on about spelling errors long after they were corrected and still didn't work. His example using BEGIN throws away much compile time checking and introduces duplicate declarations that *DO* get out of sync when they are done -- (I've seen others complain about it on the perl todo list, and I've had the experience myself).
So an anonymous twit intimating posting offtopic aspersions seems alot closer fit to a troll than anything I wrote. Nerdbutt! ;-)
