in reply to Perverse Unreadable Code

I think some people a) think they are 'hiding' their code by making it annoying to read, or b) don't know how to code with style and maintainability in mind.

I think that most of us who do this (Perl) for a living know better than to write mangled code. But, you can always pretty print the code and see how bad it really is :)

Cheers,
KM
