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

I don't think versions like:

$My::Module::VERSION = '1.23';

are the deprecated v-strings, despite being strings with version numbers in them. If you put a 'v' at the front, then it might be a v-string and I am more certain that if it was unquoted with a v in front that it would be a bare v-string. So, if I understand correctly, many people consider the following to be bad:

$My::Module::VERSION = v1.23;

On the other hand, see Re: Seeking thoughts on version numbers in modules - maybe v-strings (the magic variety as of 5.8.1) are OK after all. Still, my conclusion is that with so much contention, it is probably safer to use some other form (like what you are using, which is consistent with most of the core modules), at least until the dust settles on v-strings, one way or the other.

    [marto]: demonstrably yes, since you claim to want a safe space, your definition for which seems to be a place where you can name call, make things up or otherwise post without being challenged
    [usemodperl]: no that's not it at all, meant safe for perl people, to not be hounded by weirdos obsessed with things like... whitespace :-)
    [choroba]: I'm definitely not obsessed with whitespace, I rate myself among Perl people, and I haven't noticed any hounding
    [marto]: "no it's not that"...."weirdos "...
    [marto]: List EXE_FILES installed by CPAN so a couple of people suggest that your code looks obfuscated. I'd have to ageree, from the perspective of those who can't follow all of that one liner, it doesn't read well
    Veltro is a weirdo, obsessed with whitespace
    [marto]: to use the word "obsession" when so few people have said so little about it is grasping at staws
    marto wishes tye was around, he's so much better at this sort of thing
    usemodperl likes tye!
    usemodperl tye  too
