in reply to 20 tips to avoid pitfalls while Programming Perl

My 2˘:

3): Sometimes it's easier and faster to repeat yourself. Yes, yes.

7): Sure, they can be abused. But what Perl would be without them?

9): But what is obvious - or not? And remember good old perlpod.

11): If a one-liner is too long something went wrong ;-)

14): This is unrealistic.

16): Always use Perltidy

17): Use some versioning system (RCS, Git, Subversion...).

18): Use macros/scripts to generate the skeletons for your scripts/modules/classes.

19): Remember the egg of Columbus.

Regards, Karl
