++ to you for saving my sanity. That's just about exactly the format I use to code. I don't think I've ever seen anyone format quite like I do.

The only thing I do differently is to keep the braces in-line with the block that surrounds them (indenting them all) like so:

       my %conn_data  = @_;
       my $dbh = DBI->connect(
                $conn_data{ data_source }, 
                $conn_data{ user }, 
                $conn_data{ pass },
                        RaiseError  => 1,
                        AutoCommit  => 0,
                        LongReadLen => 65_634
                ) or die DBI->errstr;

I like the way this quickly delineates function definitions and gives the reader a bird's eye view of the major chunks of code.

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.
