in reply to A guide to coding Perl

  • Plan before you code.
  • perl -w
  • use strict;
  • Think in perl!! forget any other programming skills you may have...
  • Write small subroutines that do simple things.
  • Use CPAN modules.
  • Organize your file/files logically...
  • Separate generic stuff into modules (for reuse later, if modules are good/generic enough consider sharing).
  • indent works with perl!!!! i frequently use indent -kr
