...orthogonal to golf

Indeed - I dare anyone to run perlcritic* against any golfed code :-) (Which is why I posted the big notice about not letting any of these "techniques" make it into production code ;)

I've gotten in the habit of running perlcritic against pretty much all of my production level code these days, and taking the output with a grain of salt. My .perlcriticrc does contain quite a few things from PBP that I don't particularly agree with...

* For those unfamiliar with it, perlcritic is a commandline utility that (by default) critiques your code against a set of rules as outlined by Perl Best Practices.
