( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The Perl way (and the extreme programming one BTW) uses more tests than specifications. Specifications are like consultative assemblies, they have no direct enforcement power. They can't have until they are translated into enforcing tests.

The problem of specifications is the choice of language. Specifications in common language are accesible to everyone including management and customer, but they are ambiguous. Specfications in a more formal language are hard to write and to read.

In a sense, tests are a form of specification. The big problem is that they are only palatable to programmers.

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.
