Re: sauoq's comment:First, we don't need Yet-Another-Pair-Of-Constants-For-Zero-And-One.

I agree that it is ugly to have to declare those constants - If I had my way, they would be easily import-able, probably with use English;; but I do think it makes the code more readable/maintainable.

The objective is to allow moderately knowledgible perl-ites to be able to read the code, and be fairly confident that they understand it, without having to refer to a manual.

In this case, even using the name "$OUTPUT_AUTOFLUSH=1" does not clue the reader that his output is now UNBUFFERED. Hence, even with use English; (which is a good idea), I would still use the constants.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
