( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I actually got that idea from my CSV Database Validation program. For that, you can specify a regular expression as a "data type" for a database field. In thinking about this more, I realized that by arbitrarily passing in subroutines to validation routines, rather than try to hard-code methods that cover every possible case, I can let the programmer specify those in advance via sub references. It seems like a much more powerful system, the code is shorter, and you only build what you need.

I do agree with you about the failings of parameter lists. Design by Contract seems to be one attempt to get around this weakness.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
