Actually, using Perl::Critic doesn't help you to improves one style. It will however help you mimic the style of the people in charge of Perl::Critic.

... Who more or less mimic the style suggested by Damian Conway. Since i started using Perl::Critic, i get from an idea to working bugless code faster. Everyone is free not to use it.

I loathe this kind of advice. You give two alternatives to a line, without any explanation of why any of the alternatives are better. I certainly don't see any problem with the first line than any of the alternatives solves.

Writing my ($self) = @_ is not wrong, but it may mean that the coder - who admits to being a novice - is not sure that he knows what it means. I am showing other ways to pass args, TMTOWTDI.

You may loathe it, but i hope that it encourages people to read documentation. Maybe i'm wrong.

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.
