  • You could always make the arguments of a smug Lisp weenie:

    • everyone knows that only heretics use insert some common construct here!
    • you don't really need to do that
    • anyone who can't understand that code isn't worthy of programming computers

    As for me, a smug Perl weenie, I think you may go better pulling out a couple of subroutines. I don't write a lot of loops anymore.

    • So the Smug XP Weenie says "Extract Method!" instead? ;-)


      • I could have sworn I put on my "maintainable code" hat this morning. Oh well!

        If your Ward Cunningham number is appropriately low, you'll know a Confident XP Weenie would say, "What would happen if you extracted a couple of those transformations into their own methods?" Unlike smug weenies, confident weenies are subtle.

        • Guess who is kicking himself for missing the chance to get his Ward number down to 1 at OSCON this year? Ward even asked me to show him something in the Squeak image and I said "Um... bit busy, can I catch up with you later" and I never did.
