( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Call me old-fashioned, but I almost never use the following (although sometimes I use modules that do).
  • source filters
  • prototypes
  • formats (well, that would be old-fashioned)
  • tie (although it has been a helful hack for debugging in some occasions)
  • attributes (including lvalue)
  • barewords (not counting those that are allowed under "use strict")
  • "experimental" regex features. They look cool, but I've been bitten by their bugs too many times. I was surprised to see that Damian recomends some of them as best practices!
  • CORE::GLOBAL (sometimes useful, such as for testing)
  • Most of the variables on perlvar, but that's too long to mention here. Many of the functions in perlfunc as well.
  • <> to glob
  • foreach (heh, I'm to lazy to type those extra characters. But of course I use for!)
  • pseudohashes (they have been deprecated anyway)
  • version strings (also deprecated)
  • until

In reply to Re: Things I Don't Use in Perl by itub
in thread Things I Don't Use in Perl by Ovid

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
