This seemed like a perfectly reasonable question. I gave it an upvote which resulted in: "Reputation: 0". So, someone had downvoted your post. Why? Because you had the temerity to question dogma? I wasn't impressed with this but there's little I can do about it.

Likewise, I upvoted and find it strange that anyone should downvote. Whilst I see the logic of writing tests first, it does go against one's natural instinct and the tendency is always to create the code first. Questioning why we do things the way we do them should always be encouraged.

As a small point, people who post anonymously get an upvote less often from me.

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.
