Ah yes, the dear topic of the organized mind!
I actually tend to think the people who golf and obfuscate aren't really the culprits of the everyday unreadable code.
I really don't know how to deal with that problem, and some Perl masters don't have the greatest styles. I vaguely remember a great quote from a master programmer who said that computer program where meant to be read by humans, not computers. Was it Knuth? Does anyone know this quote?
I think this comes back to a master controlling his environment. Randal could probably instruct me on further koans about this (and he did learn quite a number of interesting things in that part of his life). I'll have to think more about this one.
