( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have to slightly disagree with you, tomazos. I feel slight tendention toward elitism, like in: "if you cannot learn to perfection precedence table, you are not good enough to understand my code, so damn you...". Sure I exagerated a lot to show my point, but just think about it.
My situation is very different from yours. In our team, about half team memebers have biology or medicine background, not computer sciences. Some (not all!) are struggling with programming, but for every one time I wish they know some rare trick, there are three times I am amazed what they know about problem domain, how they can understand what customer is saying, what I might understand wrong without their help. Parts of old system are in ASP, simple "database proof of concept" is done in MS Access, some people just know PHP and prefer it (not me!), but htey may ask me to look at their code (to solve database isuues). So this is not only issue of "learning perl precedence by heart", real life is not this simple.

So my point is: when thinking about parantheses, err on side "more () for better understanding", and avoid "for expert of my level this is obvious". Generations maintaining your code will thank you for that.

To make errors is human. But to make million errors per second, you need a computer.

Title:
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.
