( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I use the "operator goes at the end" style, which for some reason just seems more natural to me. (ISTR someone else in the monastery claiming that the trailing operator signals "this isn't done yet"; works for me.) I do this with long expressions in general, not just logical expressions in conditionals:

my $str = &long_function_name_foo() . " some literal string or other " . &long_function_name_bar();

I know a number of people who religiously break up long conditionals or subroutine calls, but are perfectly happy to leave 250-column string concatenations in their code. That blows my mind every time I see it.

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.
