in thread I surf PM during

My employer asks us to set aside "a few hours a week" to improve our skills... and I've been trying to train some of our new hires (mostly those who'll be maintaining my code) to read Perl Monks regularly, if not create an account and get seriously involved. We'll see how it turns out, but they're smart folk and ought to see the benefit.

Oh, and being able to say "ran into this problem, posted to Perl Monks, got a brilliant solution from merlyn, saved hours of time" in a weekly report was lots o' fun. :-)

[shmem]: all else leads to trouble, even if the third argument depends on the existence of the second. That may become brittle.
[Discipulus]: but if have case like subname(15,undef,3 ) maybe bettere named parameters
[Lady_Aleena]: I don't want to have to do: alpha_menu($hash, undef, $type);
[Lady_Aleena]: Or what Discipulus said.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: geany supports ctags.
[Discipulus]: a good compromise can be my ($need, $opts_ref) = @_ a scalar and an hash reference
[Discipulus]: see you monks!
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, let me get this sub rewritten, then I will look into how to use ctags in geany. Deal? 8)
[shmem]: Discipulus: yeah, that might eventually prepare the path for OO ;-)
[Lady_Aleena]: See you, Discipulus.
