Basic spelling, grammar, and logic are the minimum requirements for proper social interaction: it's rude to force other people to guess at your meaning, to be deliberately unclear, or to speak or reason incorrectly; it suggest that you don't care enough about your peers to spend the time to do it right.

Shouldn't that say "spend the time to do it correctly"? It should, at least, use the adverb rather than adjective form of the word, even if you are intent upon confusing morality with grammatical precision (as, it appears, you are).

print substr("Just another Perl hacker", 0, -2);

[Yary]: Looking at system pm's, looks like it's "package" on the first line, then POD, then "use;use strict; use warnings; use modules..."
[Yary]: ah thanks for those links
[hippo]: Just bear in mind that all such ideas are subjective.
[choroba]: There might be a different standard at the shop you write the code for.
