This is excellent advice. I think it belongs in a revised edition of the the book Effective Perl Programming right along with Michael Schwern's YAPC talk "Ineffective Perl Programming"

I hope you do write a book or put all of your bright ideas in one place, for some of us will certainly benefit.

    Is this available online anywhere? It sounds like an interesting talk.

    And japhy, I also think that these kind of suggestions are really cool things to know about. It's the kind of advice that you generally have to sweat through years of doing things the not-so-good way before you realise how you should have been doing it all this time.
