in reply to Avoiding silly programming mistakes
Try whittling problem code down to a small sample suitable for posting to PerlMonks - you almost never have to post the actual code though.
Use a good syntax checking editor. Heed all warnings. Write test suites and run coverage tests.
Avoid writing code (use other peoples modules - CPAN).
Think about edge cases and test for them.
