Should chomping a constant always raise an error?by BrowserUk (Patriarch)
|on Mar 11, 2005 at 02:45 UTC||Need Help??|
BrowserUk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Does it make sense to anyone else that chomp tests and carps about receiving a read-only parameter, before it tests whether it would require modification?
Obviously, it doesn't make much sense to chomp a constant, but if your operating within a sub, you don't know what the user will pass you.
Examine what is said, not who speaks.
Silence betokens consent.
Love the truth but pardon error.
Lingua non convalesco, consenesco et abolesco.
