TheDamian's book Perl Best Practices has a very good perltidyrc. You need this book. I can not recommend it highly enough.

    Thanks so much. But when does .perltidyrc get executed?
    • automatically when we start a perl script? or
    • when we pass the command: $ perltidy ?

      Nothing's *automatic* per se. Perltidy is a filter that you run on source. As TheDamian has it setup, it will print to STDOUT, so you can do something like this:

      perltidy >

      .perltidyrc will be automatically called for configuration details. Once you get that figured out, you can even hightlight one block in vim and do "! perltidy" to cleanup just a block within a file.

      Good luck and perservere. Tidy code is a worthwhile endeavor, whether you create it that way or beat it into submission with a tool.
