Assuming that you are approaching your software design in a sorta object oriented approach (that is, grouping common functions into one module), it's not uncommon that the structure is rewritten once during a project. I've read some OOP philosphies that the best way to start a project is to write out your object structure, let everyone look at it, then throw it away and design a new one. Nearly the first design is always bad because you don't seen the connections that you need later in the programming.

I've done the same with some of my projects. I write enough to see what my mistakes are with my code, then dump it and start again. It's by no means perfect, but that initial "oops" phase can strongly help any software project by ironing out the potental bumps in programming.

Now, if you backing against a deadline and in this situation, it's a bit hard to do that, but I would at least try to find the ones that need dire rewriting and do that, such that other programmers at least see where you are headed.

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.
