  • I remember fighting code formatting standards too, in the dark years before perltidy. Now, I'm happy to trade my perfect formatting for perltidy's mostly right formatting, simply because it's so much better than how every other person formats their code. Since I'm the only programmer in the world who can format things correctly, I figure that perltidy will at least make other people's code legible for me.

    I sympathize with you on the list indentation, but I think your desire to have a line here and there that disobeys the 80 column wrap is kind of pathological. Maybe the list indentation can be changed though. I know you can tell it to leave the way you split the list into lines alone. Of course then you have to get EVERYONE you share code with to use your settings, which is why I just use all the defaults.

    • True. In the end, it's goin to be a matter of learning to worry about what the code does, and leave how it 'reads' to tindy and moving on with life.
