in thread The Cost of Nested Referencing

All I can say is that you probably don't have non-Perl programmers around you who look at your perl-ism laden perl code. I don't care myself - I think the perl-isms are cool, so I use them when it's code that only I look at. But when other people may look into it - who are not perl programmers - I try to write code that is as close to the common denominator

    Would you try to talk English such that understanding would be easier for a French? Update: choose your poison, I guess. :-)

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      when you're job depends on the fact that non-Perl programmers need to read your Perl code, YES.

      Please end this nonsense, I'm just saying I stay away making something readable only to Perl programmers. Just because you find that unbearable, there's no reason for you to beat it to death until I bow down and follow your style.

      I do this cause I need to. End of story.
