in reply to The "Principled Programming" Project

In some ways Principle #5 goes against Perl's grain, or at least it seems that way to me. Taking advantage of all of Perl's logical (implicit) defaults is what makes the code I write in Perl so small.

These are great suggestions though, and probably even #5 is well worth applying even in Perl.

    This is probably one of those "all things in moderation" areas. In general I try not to specify defaults because they distract from the truely interesting unique components. So I'd probably look at a default-ful chunk of code and have to pick through those to find the non-defaults. It's more time, more work and generally harder to work with default-ful code. Or that's true (for some value of true) for me anyway.

[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.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: that's up to you. I only wanted to show you a path that might be more comforting than command line grep ;-)
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I don't think any of my modules could be converted to OO. They are too procedural.
