( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

To be honest, I prefer seeing idioms. It tells me that the user has a grasp on the elegance of the language. But I think that's completely orthogonal to "cleverness" - at least in the usage seen here. Idiomatic can be clear, clean, precise - and can be all these things while still being flexible to handle changing requirements.

I'll definitely agree to the "simple, obvious, correct." But I don't think idiomaticness has anything to do with that.

Then again, I've managed to eliminate about 80-90% of my manager's code from our department, and significant portions of his design. His design often is "simple, works, and rigid." I've replaced most of that with "simpler, consistant, flexible." At least, in my not-so-humble opinion ;-)

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.
