To keep our code consistent, we are implementing coding standards for YaBB 3. The current code does not meet all of these and will be slowly fixed. Coding standards are important because it makes the code more readable for other developers and for mod writers.

In addition to the standards listed below, we recommend reading Damian Conway's excellent Perl Best Practices. While we don't follow all of the standards listed in the book, it still contains many excellent recommendations and ideas.

These standards are designed to be guides to how YaBB developers should write code. While these standards may be broken in special cases, you should be prepared to explain why you have broken them.

We encourage mod writers to follow these standards as well.


We will be putting links to interesting articles about various Perl things in this section.
