This script will format .pl files
- Perl formatting is done with perltidy
Note: I used this once and currently maintain formatting manually.
$ ./tools/perltidy.pl -h
To format code:
$ ./tools/perltidy.pl <perlFile> -o <outputFile>
$ ./tools/perltidy.pl search-dev.pl -o search-dev-clean.pl
$ ./tools/perltidy.pl search-dev.cgi -o search-dev-clean.cgi
