And here you have the code, finally crafted after 37 steps of development.
Looks more like 37 hours sleepless, uninterrupted hacking.
Is this a joke? If so, I didn't get it.
I think this is unmaintainable, "write-only code". Here's why:
This really looks like code copied from about 3 or 4 different examples, hastily glued together after too much coffee and severe sleep deprivation.
perltidy with default options expands this mess from 100 to 160 lines, slightly more readable, but still ugly.
perlcritic --brutal emits 130 warnings, 1.3 warnings per line, recommends refactoring. perlcritic --harsh still emits 28 warnings, still recommends refactoring. Even perlcritic --gentle does not remain silent.
Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)
