Perl::Tidy to the rescue
Keeping code well formatted is not vital, however, it reduces the cost of maintenance and it raises acceptance among co-workers. Whenever someone looks into code snippets which vary all over the place the results are unpredictable. There are reasonable tools on the market which test your code and format it.

perltidyrcfile using the command option
