( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I hate dealing with code where methods only do one or two lines of action and there are many many such methods and subs.

So do I, so do I. I like short methods, not tiny ones :) I think screen page (24 lines) size is a good size for subs (methods or non-methods) and anything much larger should be taken apart.

Subs with only one or two meaningful lines are not what I was talking about when I meant short subs. They're a little too short :)

I do prefer one-line subs to five-line subs when it comes to often repeated code.

sub property1 { my ($self, $value) = @_; @_ >= 2 and $self->{property1} = $value; # update: s/>/>=/ $self->{property1}; # update: s/property/pro +perty1/ } sub property2 { my ($self, $value) = @_; @_ >= 2 and $self->{property2} = $value; # update: s/>/>=/ $self->{property2}; # update: s/property/pro +perty2/ }
versus
sub property1 : Property; sub property2 : Property;

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
