I have never had a single problem with perltidy, and I suspect only people writing really questionable code do have problems.

On the other hand, if you have a tidy codebase already, you don't really need perltidy to clean it up.

It's when the code is an absolute mess that you need a cleanup tool the most.

Just my $0.02,

    I didn't mean messy code as in indentation and brace style; I meant code that uses very obscure features of Perl's syntax. The kind of stuff people use in some of the obuscations might be very hard to tidy, but might also be not worth fixing.
