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

I've always liked the "If it's a routine that takes up more than a page, break it into subroutines"

Though I really follow

  • Redundent areas get put into subroutines
  • Use descriptive names for your subroutines so that it should be intuitive what they are doing. Comments can help as well
  • Update: Coding style links, not just sub issues:

  • Regarding style
  • Suggestions for working with poor code
  • Silly code reviews and shift
  • A few style suggestions The thread's good, but I like tilly's points
  • is this correct? Some subroutine pitfalls illustrated
  • Call Subroutines by Approximate Name No help, but amusing
  • Monk ethics: Beauty vs. Power
  • A question of style
  • Another commenting question, More on commenting
  • p.s. Nothing like archaeological digs through the monastery. Tends to be a good learning experience.
