in reply to My cow-orkers mostly...

I work in a bioinformatics lab - mostly everything I've done has been done in Perl. In my little world, things like C are trusted but used as a last resort, and other languages like Java and C++ are mistrusted and all but unused.

[stevieb]: perldigious You should start by writing some unit tests. That'll ensure current functionality doesn't break with changes.
[choroba]: unit tests++
[choroba]: The only problem you can't solve by adding more tests is the problem of having too many tests.
[stevieb]: choroba Been there, done that :) Better too many than not enough though!
[stevieb]: I very often write a base set of unit tests before writing any code. It helps dictate the API, and ensures my earliest of ideas stay on track.
