Some of the code I was assigned was written by someone who didn't understand how to restrict scope in Perl, or specify global information. As a result, every subroutine had 15 parameters. To say this made understanding his code difficult is an understatement.
Another former collegue never used subroutines. *sigh*
I appreciate your comments on "verbose code is not slow code" and will try to keep them in mind. It is a fallacy I have fallen into.
