Not sure about Damian style, unless you mean Perl6 :-)

'perldoc perlstyle' should provide some basics, if you haven't read
them. After seeing a lot of different styles in Perl code I've come to
the conclusion that being consistent is the most important thing--
which isn't always easy to achieve yourself, let alone with teams of multiple 
developers.  Having guildelines that make the implicit explicit is a good 
place to start
