in reply to Automate perltidy for PM code?

I wouldn't mind seeing a "tidy this" link right next to the code's download link which tidied the display for me alone. I'd probably use it once in a great while. Anything more than that seems like overkill (esp. on server resources).

    Putting something next to the download doesn't do much given that you could set up your own launcher to do the same thing after download. I wouldn't expect the impact on server resources of a tidy button to be that much if anything - the server appears to spend most of it's time on database interlocking, suggesting there is cpu idle time left over. The impact of saving a write or update, causing the interlocking is the same irrespective of whether a tidy was done on the post.

    ^M Free your mind!

      To clarify, by "tidied the display" I meant on the screen. You are right that it makes no sense to provide this on download only.
