Hehe. Fair enough. Today was something of a case in point. =)

I tend to make things seem black and white when I don't really think they are. Tests written before the fact are the ones I find most useful, and I think it's one of the best programming disciplines to make a habit. When specs change, of course, the tests have to change too. And I agree, it is possible to create tests after the fact which are written to spec and don't take the code into account. They're certainly better than nothing.

[shmem]: maybe that supports ctags, check the documentation
[Lady_Aleena]: I'd have to talk to a geany person to see.
[Lady_Aleena]: Right now, I'm trying to decide whether I want to rewrite how variables are entered in the sub I'm working on.
[shmem]: wait, what? you want that person to read the documentation for you?
[Lady_Aleena]: I might have to go with options instead of a straight list.
[Discipulus]: if more than 3 go for named variables LA
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, it is at 2 now, but with what I am thinking about, it could go to 3. However, only 1 is needed. The second and third are optional.
[shmem]: straight list or named parameters - that depends on whether (and how many) optional arguments you have
[Discipulus]: if so a plain list is ok, imho
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I already have the plugin installed, just not active.
