in reply to IYHO, what do you consider good code?

After grading a bunch of high school kids trying to write a program that opens a file, runs a foreach loop with a simple regex after a 20 week course my standards are quite low. Most of them could not even say use strict when I asked them to use strict. In writing

stict and warnings are good thing most of the time. good comments all the time.

Caring enough to think about it is probably as important as anything else.

    Thank you so much every one. I have saved this page for later study, and I will take all of this to heart. I appreciate your input, and I will code accoriding to my interpretations of it. Hopefully, someday I'll become an experienced enough monk to give advice such as the advice given above. Have a lovely day :-)
