in thread Question about ternary condition

Interestingly, I've had a debate with one PerlMonk about the prudence of programming safely using parenthesis or other such practices when unsure of the exact nature of the language. He then attacked me personally and pointed out how his team of crack coding buddies would not tolerate such wasteful use of text at his company, and would proceed to point out the nuances of Perl and demand that code would be written to suit.

I for one always applaud a programmer for erring on the safe side, regardless of what such cowboys have to say, or what disclaimers they may preface their opinions with.

    I agree with you - I've had a similar problem this year when a competing company, nervous of its previously inconsistent perl coding style set about attacking mine as a kind of defence. I was accused of unnecessarily escaping things like '_' in regexps - 'What's this \_ doing here when _ will do...?' I was asked in an aggressive manner in front of a senior manager.
