Perl Style: From Perlstyle (part 2)

  • No space between function name and its opening parenthesis.
  • Space after each comma.
  • Long lines broken after an operator (except `and’ and `or’).
  • Space after last parenthesis matching on current line.
  • Line up corresponding items vertically.
  • Omit redundant punctuation as long as clarity doesn’t suffer.
  • Use here documents instead of repeated print() statements.
  • Line up corresponding things vertically, especially if it’d be too long to fit on one line anyway.
