( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Okay, that's a different question and worth more thought.

I don't have a problem importing things into my namespace for three reasons:

  • I keep my code fairly short, so I don't have to import many things.
  • I tend to import only the things I really want, so the use line explicitly says what I want.
  • When I bend my second point, I only do so with well-defined idioms, such as with the Test::* modules or something like File::Path.

I expect someone maintaining my code to be able to find the original location of functions I've imported. I try not to make it hard on that person, but I don't believe in writing un-idiomatic code because it's perceptually "self-documenting". Part of maintainability is readability and duplicate code hurts that.

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