in reply to Worst thing you ever made with Perl


I've written worse code than the first public versions of the module, but nevertheless it was released too early and I made quite a few incorrect design choices. OTOH I think the docs were quite OK (except spelling errors) even in the first public version. Shame I lost that version.

Another ugly beast worth notice is Template::RTF. RTF is a crazy enough format by itself, but when you start hacking on it with regexps ...

Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live.
