in reply to Near-free function currying in Perl
So, I would say allow for both a suffix and a prefix, if desired. If nothing is specified, default to suffix=>'_c'. If a suffix is specified, use it instead. If a prefix is specified, but no suffix, just use the prefix. If both are specified, use both. Someone may want to see CURRIED_log_handle_CURRIED() as their name, for readability.
Remember - you're providing low cost as the default. But, maybe I want to pay a higher typing cost in order to achieve a lower overall maintenance cost. Your module should allow that, otherwise its adoption rate may not be as high as you would like.
Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.
