Re: Perl archeology: Need help in refactoring of old Perl code that does not use strict (hurry up and wait)by Anonymous Monk
|on Nov 14, 2017 at 08:26 UTC||Need Help??|
1) ... strict pragma ...My time to make the conversion is limited and using some off the shelf tools that speed up the process would be a great help.
Hurry up and leave it alone :)
That pretty much means convert one at a time by hand after you have learned the understanding of importance of knowing :) Speed kills
2. If possible ... I do not understand ...
That is a hint you shouldn't be refactoring anything programmatically.
There are a million nodes on perlmonks, and a readers digest version might be Modern Perl a loose description of how experienced and effective Perl 5 programmers work....You can learn this too.
Hurry up and bone up
3. Generally this task looks like a case of refactoring. I wonder, if any Perl IDE has some of required capabilities, or are there tools that can helpful.
I hope you have foot insurance :) happy hunting :) perlcritic, PPI/PPIx::XPath , PPIx::EditorTools,
So enjoy, test first, step0++
