in thread Perl Golf - A proposal for a new section of PerlMonks.org

Ah. You're right. I am, of course, thinking about readability whitespace, not programmatic whitespace...

This does make it much harder to easily quantify a score for a piece of code. I am mainly trying to prevent Perl Golf from simply becoming another Obfuscated area. Since so much "obfuscated" code is simply normal Perl constructs with one-letter variable names and no whitespace, I'd like to see the Perl Golf section emphasize clever, terse, and readable code, since we already have a section devoted to unreadability.
