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....
