in reply to A question about the best way to use subroutines

Here's some fairly common heuristics for you. Factor code out into subroutines when:

  • You see sections of code that look nearly identical.
  • You realize that some specific task your code performs is just a particular case of a more general task.
  • You can imagine a scenario in which your code would be copied-and-pasted somewhere else.
  • You can think of your code as performing a "black-box" transaction.
