( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Funnily enough, I think for many cases I would write that as

print 'text text ', $obj->method1(), ' more text ', $obj->method2(), ' blah blah ', $obj->method3();

I would only use printf if I needed to apply special formatting to the method returns.

My main reasons for this choice are that

  1. It is easy to extend.

    Adding 'and more text', $obj->method2.5 is easy, and commenting out one part likewise.

  2. As the length of the format string increases, it becomes unweildy and need to be split across 2 or 3 lines anyway.
  3. I find this formatting easier to see what text applies to which method.

The absence of a newline, is because i always have -l enabled.
