Another possible style, which I prefer, consists in writing the comma at the beginning of the next line, not the end of the previous one.
That reminds me of the professor who gave us our first programming classes back in university. He would write the semi-colons before the statements, not after them. (This was in Pascal, where semi-colons are statement separators, just like in Perl).
This style also allows easier editing of the hash.
Really? How? I see as disadvantage that if you remove the first item you need to modify the next line. Or if you insert an item at the beginning, you need to modify the next line too. The big advantage of putting a comma after the items is that you can always put a comma there, and don't have to do special things when adding or removing elements - not even at the beginning or end.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
