in thread REALLY Private Methods in perl: Is Perl Flexible enough to be made Inflexible?

Wow dude!! That was pretty loaded. And easier said then done ;) It's ALWAYS good to know all your alternatives.

A well reasoned point, incidentally, might be a long-lived software project with a large hierarchy of objects and a whole bunch of developers. It's a sad truth that some developers don't really care about good programming practices. Do you really want sloppy coders violating your well-designed system by making frequent calls to subroutines with underscores?

Bad coding practices sneak into the best of companies during crunch-times. And if it's the client's developers who are being sloppy, well...you don't have to be busness-trained to realize that dumping a paying client over the love of perl isn't in a company's best interest. Rather let them learn by example over time with gentil and wise encouragement.

BTW, did you go to Mac? We may have a mutual friend :)

[Discipulus]: Corion are you would able to realize such thing? O_O
[Corion]: In the same vein I have a script that automates Firefox to enter some data into another system. It's not faster than the people using the script if they were to do it manually, but they prefer not having to check the data and not having typos when ...
[Corion]: ... entering the data
[Corion]: Discipulus: I don't know whether I could really do that, but the init process itself mostly launches other processes, and the whole startup is just following a path of dependencies and making sure they are all running. Which basically is what ...
[Discipulus]: when at work my time is (temporarly) owned by the firm, so i do not care (coworkers whatch movies.. I code Perl)
[Corion]: ... make already does, except for files instead of programs. But maybe with some /proc hackery, that could be eliminated and one could use plain make :-D
[choroba]: systemd just makes is asynchronous
[choroba]: so, make -j
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah - but when writing Perl to save time (instead of having fun), it helps to look whether you're actually saving time ;) Why spend 5 minutes doing manually what you can spend three years automating? ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Oh, yeah :-D
