in thread Null-stripping performance

First of all, I can't see what your replay has anything to do with my question.

You acually don't have any idea of where/why/what/how I'm going to use this code. This feels more like you have a grudge against me personaly.

I've been programming for about 20 years now and kind of know the value of documentation so I would be glad if you could tell me what I wrote to make you think that I didn't appreciate the help. Or that I had no clue of why I should comment my code.

I'm not ironic, I would really want to know since I don't want to look stupid while posting questions here (as I do reading your reply). I know my english isn't super but most of the time english grammar affects programming as much as the color of the chair I'm sitting on, none..

Best regards, Qiau

    99% of all questions on Perlmonks are from novice and intermediate programmers. As such, the concept of commenting difficult sections of code is alien to them. As this question deals with a counter-intuitive optimization, mentioning that commenting it well is a reply well-served for most people who ask questions here (and on #perl and on #cgiapp and ... etc).

    I wholeheartedly apologize if my reply insulted you - it was not meant as such. Note - I didn't even notice that you weren't a native English speaker.

    My criteria for good software:
    1. Does it work?
    2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
