PERL Style Guide

Perl Best Practices
Perl Best Practices
Damian Conway, 2005
 
With a good dose of Aussie humor, Dr. Conway (familiar to many in the Perl community) offers 256 guidelines on the art of coding to help you write better Perl code--in fact, the best Perl code you possibly can. The guidelines cover code layout, naming conventions, choice of data and control structures, program decomposition, interface design and implementation, modularity, object orientation, error handling, testing, and debugging.
"This is a must-read for any Perl programmer."
"Any team, or any individual for that matter, who is writing Perl code for a living should read this book and implement its recommendations."
