in reply to Broken Write function? Does anyone have Magic fixer ability?

      Please dont respond if you want to tell me about formatting, or if you want to tell me this is a continuation post or if you dont have anything constructive to input. Unless you want to tell me im a genius.

It's comments like that which cause me to heap scorn on your posts. If you were one of my students I'd probably end up failing you for the semester. I won't tell you about formatting (this time) but I will point out several flaws in your programming.

  1. Failure to use the pragma "strict." This probably would have saved you some pain
  2. Lack of error checking (see your "open" calls) to ensure what you want to have happen happens
Those two issues alone would have me give your programming assignment a failing grade if you were one of my students.

I have to be honest with you: when I see posts like the one I am critiquing now and others like this one from someone who has been around this Monastery for less than a week and is flame baiting I consider ignoring anything else you post.

I've been on this site since 2001. Experience has taught me that here in PM as well as in life a bit of humility goes a very long way if you want help from others learning any skill and especially Perl. Tone down your attitude and you'll find this is a great place to hang out and a go to place to learn about Perl. My expectations of my students can apply here:

  1. Do you own work
  2. Write proper code with embedded documentation
  3. If you come to me for help with a programming issue:
    1. Explain what you are trying to accomplish or what you expect to happen
    2. Show me the code. There should be just enough for it to be self contained but don't overwhelm me with your entire source.
    3. Provide me with an error code. Copy/paste if you can.
  4. Be professional/polite. I've been in the field since 1981 and I have personal experience that taught me that bad attitude gets you nowhere.

The other thing that irritates me are node titles that smack of the author being a smart ass. "Magic fixer ability", really? Did you get that from a Pokemon episode?

    Your bountiful wisdom is appreciated. Yet i still have errors that are not fixed.
    I asked you not to write about formatting and yet, here are formatting tips...

    Also, the comments are spurred by the "continued" inability of anyone to provide constructive aid to any. As far as this community goes. I don't see much value in it...

    PS: Go get more therapy please

    Also, the comments are spurred by the "continued" inability of anyone to provide constructive aid to any project. Go get more therapy please, and maybe ill work on becoming "STOIC" like u (this is not rome)

    Strict and warnings are not my problem

    My problem is that the HTML result is not grabbing the source code to verify wether or not the address is valid...
    yes i fixed the other errors, no thanks to you...

    Sometimes i think that I'm the only one here thats posting interesting content.

      The purpose of putting up the entire code is that you can run the code yourself. what a concept.

      U feel silly now huh =(

      then u can use strict and warnings all u want
        I don't know about blue_cowdawg, but I pretty much always feel silly.

      And your lack of manners continues.....
