The saying goes "Theres more than one way to do it", not "Theres more than one way you need to accomodate it". ;-)

TIMTOWDI (as I understood it) refers to the core language, not general API design. I would reconsider your approach - you probably do not want or need the hassle of excessive error checking on parameters, a combinatorial explosion of edge cases to test for, laborious contradictory POD, maintaining obscure language features etc etc.

If people dont like your API, well they can wrap it in "The Way They Want to Do It". And do their own damn testing.

Make it useful and easy to grok. Keep it Simple, Stupid.

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.
