Re: Best practices and any way to have Perl Tidy clean it up
in thread Best practices and any way to have Perl Tidy clean it up
Thank you! That's pretty much exactly what I was looking for. I actually use the -pbp (perl best practices) flag with Perl Tidy, which sets 78-column lines for my scripts, but does not touch object params for some reason. So, 99% of my script is shortened down to 78-column lines, then I have these stragglers, these long lines that are object params. Guess I will have to do it manually (no big deal) to fit within the suggestions given above.
The -pbp flag I believe sets all options to that which you find in the perltidyrc file provided by the Perl Best Practices book. Seems a little known option (it's not even in --help output), but something worthwhile knowing.
Again, thank you for your excellent response.
