in reply to Style geekcode

A couple of things that stood out with this geek stylecode ... Hrmmm, geek and style, is that a contradiction of terms in itself? ... Anyhow ...

  • The ++ denotation within the whitespace around operators seems without merit - This is because while the prefix and postfix increment operands perform the same task, their order differs and as such, depending on the code, are not stylistically interchangeable.

  • The == denotation within the whitespace around operators is duplicated by the gt denotation because in fact, after all, == is just another equality test.

  • The variable and sub names denotation is quite neat, although I think the parentheses for plurality is redundant if px would suffice (where x is the descriptor code to apply to scalars, hashes and arrays) - For example, Vp(s0h0a0) should be able to be reduced to Vp0.
 

Very nifty though ... Juerd++

    Hrmmm, geek and style, is that a contradiction of terms in itself?

    I like to think so ;)

    * The ++ denotation within the whitespace around operators seems without merit

    I knew I had to document it better (will do). It's just the difference between $foo++ and $foo ++ - choose any direction ;)

    # The == denotation within the whitespace around operators is duplicated by the gt denotation because in fact, after all, == is just another equality test.

    I separated them because I have seen someone consequently use "$foo > $bar" and "$foo==$bar"

    * For example, Vp(s0h0a0) should be able to be reduced to Vp0.

    Perhaps, but that would make the rules very complex, and I think that if someone's going to parse, a simple regex will have to be able to do the job ;)
