It is kind of far-fetched to talk about testing here.
Hmmmmm. Maybe I didn't make the smiley big enough. Let's try again:
guess it's just as well that Chapter 18 suggests testing everything before you deploy it! ;-)
The point I was trying to make is not that you should rely on the testing to catch this problem, but that, if you don't catch the problem earlier, the testing phase should still do so.

In other words, (just exactly as you say) best practices ought to be an integrated process, so even if one practice introduces a problem, another practice should catch it. Which is precisely what my book advocates.

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.
