Thank you.

I was actually thinking that the way one develops code is highly non-linear. According to me, the way we study e comprehend it too. Moving from this principle could be useful for books, as I said in my previous message. Or for teamworks, so that different programmers at different levels could communicate between them.

Code provide at the same time all levels of details: documentation, comments, high-level code, tricks and so on. Good programmers organize this stuff so that one can easily dig trough their code (for example, with POD you can separate documentation from code). I think this could be done more effectively, using principles of graphic design.

I'd rather judge how beautiful code is by 1 set of standards & how beautiful a illustration or painting is by a completely different set of standards.

Me too. But, for example, maps of undergrounds are illustrations, and I think I can judge them by aesthetic and readibility standards. I'd like to try to transform computer programs in illustrations. Perhaps this is a complete waste of time. I hope not :)

It's better I provide an example of what I'm talking about: if I'll have time, I'll do it this weekend.

see you. larsen

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
