The perlfaq is and has been maintained by several people, so you see a lot of different styles and conventions. Rather than enforce a particular style, I let the answers show that there is more than one way to do things, although I have also started noted the authors of each answer.

The "best way" is up to you. The "or" version generally works out for people who don't like parentheses (since they don't use the parens' supreme precendence to define the order).

    [Corion]: Hi Lady_Aleena!
    [Lady_Aleena]: Corion, how are things?
    [Corion]: Lady_Aleena: Quite good ;) I'm working four days now, instead of five, which helps my mood and my weekends tremendously
    [Corion]: My Perl output hasn't recovered, but as $work is still somewhat stressful, I don't think this would be different with a five day workdweek
    [Lady_Aleena]: Corion, that is a good thing (TM) 8)
    [Corion]: And this evening, I'm actually dusting off some old module of mine and bringing it up to the last version of the library I'm wrapping
    [Lady_Aleena]: Updating things can be fun, if there is a better way to do it.
