As for the criticism that a later programmer might not understand the code: limiting yourself to widely-known and well-used syntax is the antithesis of Perl programming and I want no part of it.

But using obscure syntax when obvious and well-known syntax (a subroutine call) exists is the antithesis of maintainable code. There are so many ways to do things in Perl that you have to choose what you want to optimize for. Ovid says he wants to optimize for clarity and maintainability. That sometimes means doing things in a simpler way and avoiding cool but obscure (though documented) tricks like this.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
