There's more than one way to do things

Pros and Cons thus far for me. (Luckily the 'cons' are pretty (/very!) nit-picky. I just wanted to air my grievances)


  • No smart not-match operator. !~~
  • Perl 5.10 goodness not enabled by default. (I don't want more boilerplate.
    #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings;
    is bad enough without use feature ":5.10";
  • Perl 5.10 command-line goodness requires a chorded key (shift+e). I'm way more prone to typo'ing when a chord's involved. I know I'm going to type -lnWE and -lnwe<shift> a billion times. But, more likely, I'm going to patch my perl to make 'e' like 'E'.
  • Boo for deprecating my $foo if 0;. Rightfully so... but still. :-)
  • Boo for non-alphabetical release orderings. ("5.8.8" gt "5.10.0" -- I warned you these were nit-picky.).


  • Hallelujah for finally adding // and //=!
  • say "Hallelujah"; I'm already finding myself correcting print join("\t", @foo), $/; to the far Perlier say join "\t", @foo;

Hmm. The 'pros' list is shorter than I thought it'd be. Nonetheless, I'm happy overall.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
