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

I have two .perltidyrc files.

One contains just this line:

The other contains various heretical statements such as
-i=3 # Indent level is 3 cols -et=3 # Use tabs for indents because I'm such a sociopath -ci=3 # Continuation indent is 3 cols -icb # Make closing braces align with the body of their block

As I'm editing code, I'll run perltidy over it with my preference for formatting. Before checking code back in, I'll run perltidy with the Perl Best Practices formatting, run ./Build test and commit.

I, too, draw a distinction between "indenting" and "alignment". I, too, program in languages other than Perl (such as Ruby, Python and PHP).

I also edit using a proportional font (DejaVu Sans is my current favourite), which renders any attempts at "alignment" futile. I cannot stand the practice of sticking in extra spaces to make the '=' symbols line up.

The perltidy tool lets me slip in under the radar of contemporary society.

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.
