in thread Planning your software before writing

This is the way I have been programming also and have found it awful when it comes to upgrading, modifying, trouble-shooting, especially a year or so after implementing. There seems to be an inordinate ampount of time spent trying to figure out what I've done.

I think this method might work well with small applications, but as move on to bigger things on the net, it appears to reach a limit of usefulness.

Of course I am not in the same league as merlyn when it comes to programming perl.
