in thread My coding guidelines

I wonder what is so strange about rule 24. The perlstyle manual page says: space around most operators. Which is what rule 24 is saying, but it's listing the exceptions. The reason I put space between ++ and -- and its operands is that those operators are "large" (two characters).

As for ->, it's a binary operator. I put whitespace around other binary operators, so why not ->? If you don't, you can get long blobs of text, without a resting place for the eyes. Perl should look like English, not German. ;-).

    But English is only my third language - while German is my second! :-) (Well, maybe you'd prefer me to code in Greek. :^) )

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      English isn't my first language either. But it's Larry's first language....

Corion had a meeting with some startup today. They have a very interesting DB proxy product, but their tech stack is really, really weird. They use the Pg wire protocol but not the Pg libraries to handle it. They support Pg SQL syntax, but don't use ...
[Corion]: ... the Pg parser (or so they claim).
[Corion]: Also, they rolled their own user management instead of supporting LDAP for user/role management, but that just shows that they're new in the enterprise market :)
Corion also just now realizes they didn't leave business cards.
