in thread There's a level in Hell reserved for ________

I've always used this style for args:
my_function_call( $arg1, $arg2, $arg3, );
And for really long ones that would wrap, I do something like this:
My::Module::With::Really::Long::Name::and_function_call( $arg1, $arg2, $arg3, );
Keeping each arg on a separate line makes them easy to read and easy to change, in my opinion. It is the most common style I've seen in use by experienced Perl programmers.

    I always write them like so:
    my_function_call( $arg1, $arg2, $arg3, );
    I indent all blocks, whether they be code, anonymous array/hash constructors, parameter (or other) lists, or anything else in the same way. Makes a lot of sense, if you ask me, when you're nesting calls:
    my_function_call( my_other_function_call( $arg1, $arg2, and_yet_one_more_function_call( $arg1, $arg2, $arg3, ), ), $arg2, $arg3, );
    my_function_call( my_other_function_call( $arg1, $arg2, and_yet_one_more_function_call +( + $arg1, + $arg2, + $arg3, +), ), $arg2, $arg3, );
    Yuck, if I may say so.

    Makeshifts last the longest.

    I do as Aristotle does. That way if I have to change the line on which the function call is made, I don't have to reindent the arguments.
