in thread Perl::Tidy formatting question

if there is a way to tell it not to do such, I may have over looked it when reading through the man for it, please let me know
You want "cuddled else" (-ce):
perltidy -ce
The Perl Best Practices book recommends: "Don't cuddle an else". You need to buy the book if you want to know the reason. Perhaps perltidy adheres to this as its default behavior.

    I do have the PBP I guess I have not run across that before, what is even weirder is Perl::Critic doesn't say anything under Brutal mode and that basically "throws the book at you". Anyways thanks for the pointer and I'll have to search for the section of the PBP later today for why that is recommended.
