in thread IYHO, what do you consider good code?

Usually when writing debug code, I will use this type of statement (for just the reason above)...

use constant DEBUG => 1; ... ... warn "Foo" if DEBUG;
or
use constant DEBUG => 1; ... ... my $debugsub = DEBUG ? { warn @_ } : {}; #need to fix stack trace... ... ... &$debugsub(foobar);
Allows turning it off in one location. Just my $0.02.

    Make it an environment variable and it's even easier:

    BEGIN { $ENV{DEBUG} = $ENV{DEBUG} ? 0 : 1; } use constant DEBUG => $ENV{DEBUG};

    Update: Good points both responses, though I'm slightly happier with the BEGIN block from a maintenance standpoint.

      Make it a more specific environment variable and you're golden. Alzabo respects the ALZABO_DEBUG environment variable, your modules could do something similar.

      BEGIN { $ENV{DEBUG} = $ENV{DEBUG} ? 0 : 1; } use constant DEBUG => $ENV{DEBUG};

      Why the BEGIN block?

      use constant DEBUG => !!$ENV{DEBUG};

      Juerd # { site => 'juerd.nl', plp_site => 'plp.juerd.nl', do_not_use => 'spamtrap' }
