CodingStyle

Some hints for coding style.

Perl Best Practices

First of all, there is the book "Perl Best Practices" in the project room, with some style hints in the beginning.

perltidy

Then I have installed the program "perltidy" in the project room. This will reformat your code.
If you don't like what it does in some points, you can configure it completely with a configuration file. Please read the documentation.

General Rules

Two major points I have seen in most bots:

  • use spaces a lot! between operators, in control structures, after commas, ...
  • never write overlong lines. around 100 characters should be the maximum you can split method calls over multiple lines like:
  $planet->stationed_fleet->move_ships(
          $target_id,
          $cruisers,
          $transports
  )
