Best practices: Configuration #perl

๐Ÿ• ๏ธŽ - 2008-07-15

When a module can be passed a reference to some sort of configuration object, the module should not modify the configuration as an undocumented side-effect of calling it.

Sounds reasonable, yes?

Rationale: The caller is quite likely to want to use the same configuration object for several modules.

Not exactly rocket science, right?
