  1. Start writing the test harness before you start writing the code you want to test... it can often clarify just what it is you need to do!
  2. From time to time stop and think. It's not a luxury!
  3. Don't be afraid to experiment with different ways to do things, not only might you learn something new; but you might also understand occasionally why your original code was better
  4. Take time to clean your code up regularly... in particular make an effort to be consistent even if it means going back and reviewing existing code. Be critical.
  5. Sometimes you need to work at being lazy. Learn how to use your toolset effectively. Add your own tools if you need them.

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.
