    Mark,
    Agree with your sentiment about perl in bioinformatics. Also, really appreciate your contribution to BioPerl project.

    >You should add a section on using Perl::Critic and its script, perlcritic. This will tell you everything about a Perl script or module that is not compatible with PBP.

    I like PBP. but I don't like some of these. In my opinion, PBP is a little tight compared with current Perl trend.

    And PBP is too long for beginners to read when they start Perl programming. I wanted to provide short topic for beginners.

    >I would never ever recommend anyone, *especially* beginners, to use $@ directly.

    $@ is not bad. I always use $@, but I never have big troubles. People likely to deny $@, but $@ is not bad.

    >eval { ... }; if($@) { ... }

    This is correct syntax.

    eval {
    ...
    };

    if ($@) {

    }

    If eval is nested , $@ is maybe cleared, but you can save $@ to lexical variable when $@ is overwritten. This is edge case. Usually, $@ work well.

    Try::Tiny big problem is that we use return function transparently.

    I will recommend try { } catch { } syntax if this syntax is added to Perl core.
