I am the proverbial "accidental" programmer. I have found that I really like Perl and programming so I am pursuing that route now. I am the Debian systems administrator and junior Perl programmer for a company called Inspire.

New Job...and questions asked...

[ #33195 ]

So today I asked the seemingly simple question of "What coding standards does the team go by?". I got "Coding standards?".

I got to look at the Perl code as well. It isn't too bad, though the no coding standards shows. It has its own logging system (I will introduce Log4perl or Log::Dispatch). It has its own configuration system (which I will replace with one of the Config:: modules).

They seem to be "half ass" (excuse my language) with both of those as well.

I am glad I like cleaning up code. : )

  • at my work place, we are just getting more into Perl. I have installed Perl::Critic on dev box but i don't think it is well used yet. a good start on coding standard though. Damain's PBP book is good for this purpose as well.

    what is your plan if you are going to introduce coding standard?
