I've occasionally referred to it as "waterfall programming", since you start at the top of the code, and write straight down to the bottom. *shrug*

    I like that name, and have seen it before. But that was for code like this:

    %triUK = (0 + 0 + 0 => qq//.qq//.qq// => map { (my $foo) = /(\d+)/; $foo => $rev{"*1e$_"} } grep { s/^\*1e//g and /[bB]/ and $_ <= 22 } @dummy = values %parts ); sing("lalalalalah");
    Or: A statement that doesn't fit on a single line, but can be made looking awful when indented more every line, and filled up with uselessness :).
