If you do code reviews and 40% of developers find your code obscure, then possibly you do need to work on making your code clearer. OTOH possibly you need to work on educating them so that they understand your code, and work more effectively themselves.

There's a sampling trap here that I've seen many organizations fall prey to, which is to have the top 50% of developers be the principal (or only!) participants in code reviews. Big mistake if you're vetting code for maintainability. The top half may have no problems with idioms that will stump others. I've seen this happen with Java and C++, as well as Perl.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
