in reply to Formatting variables
I don't use "camelCase" because it looks too much like Java, regardless of it's name. I have found that the tendency for one to use camelCase often accurately indicates their less advanced relationship with idiomatic Perl. It's not 100% accurate, but accurate enough. An additional reason I don't arbitrarily capitalize letters in variable names is that this makes it meaningful when I do, so it's an additional degree of freedom for conveying information that you do not get when you just arbitrarily nameStuffLikeThis.
