This talk will show you how to choose a dialect of Perl that suits your preferred level of risk. It won't be a simple prescription, but you will learn why avoiding certain constructs can lead to fewer nasty surprises and less difficulty integrating code written by a team. A little planning and a willingness to choose practical solutions over magic can really pay off in reduced debugging time.
Perl gives you a lot of rope, but it's not too late to learn some new knots.
