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

Thanks for creating this node. I've often wondered if what I'm doing is the right thing. I tend to flip-flop between both methods based on the following criteria:

* If the routine has flow modifiers like goto or next, I use a single return statement.

* If the routine has no flow modifiers and has code duplication that aids readability, I use multiple return statements to keep each duplicated section independent (they can now be jettisoned on-demand).

* If the routine has flow modifiers and code duplication, I use multiple return statements with a debug print statement before every return (during development). I also suddenly turn religious and start praying.

Writing mostly baby Perl (see "Baby" Perl versus "Bad" Perl), though, means I don't really adhere to "coding standards".

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.
