in reply to My coding guidelines

Abigail-II, great list. I agree with most of them (rule #24 is just a bit odd for me). Also, I understand rule #16 but don't understand the reasoning (maybe that means I don't understand the rule). Any chance of talking you into expounding on that some more?

    #16 is about the fact that if you reference a non-existance hash key...nothing happens. Better to use the options detailed in the OP so that "mis"-references are trapped.
