In larger scripts, I simultaneously handle that and the clarity issue by writing code like this
I got kinda turned off of IO->Handle when I read this comment in the pod
When I read the authors name, it strengthened the feeling.
I have absolutely nothing against Graham Barr (the author of IO::Handle), nor even much against that module.
My only reservation was of the practice of using IO->Handle only for the purposes of turning on autoflush.
If $|=1; $|=0; is deemed to cryptic, you could use something like:
Examine what is said, not who speaks."Efficiency is intelligent laziness." -David Dunham
"When I'm working on a problem, I never think about beauty. I think only how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong." -Richard Buckminster Fuller
If I understand your problem, I can solve it! Of course, the same can be said for you.
