POD SHOULD not be interleaved with the code, and is not an alternative for comments.
Does this include POD put before subroutines? Such as:
Variables with a small scope SHOULD have short names, variables with a broad scope SHOULD have descriptive names.
Heh, there was a guy in my high school C++ class who declared all his counter variables as globals, and he used a different var for every loop. The entire bloody alphabet was at the top of every code file he wrote.
Constants (or variables intended to be constant) . . .
Is there any execuse for not doing "use constant ..."?
No cuddled elses or elsifs . . .
Indents SHOULD be 4 spaces wide. Indents MUST NOT contain tabs.
Where's my flame thrower? :)
