in thread Worst thing you ever made with Perl

The Right Way(tm) elements are far more then just indenting , improperly scoped varibales, etc.
Elements central to the ideas behind my original point are:
  • The initial time it takes to learn what The Right Way(tm) is
  • Remembering and applying The Right Way(tm)
  • Fully understanding concepts and the ramifications of not doing it The Right Way(tm), before you move the knowledge from the mind (private space) to the physical (public space)
This goes beyond programming and extends into any discipline. However, the shared realtiy of life is that the above does not work because if we all remained inactive until we comprehended then we would remain inactive. We must crawl, walk, run.
