in thread how to print out side of for loop?

Thanks marto,

I should have tested the code.

In fact, nowhere does he state that he doesn't want to use a for loop. I think he just wanted to understand why he couldn't print outside of the for loop.

Obviously, the previous responses DID NOT HELP HIM.

You can be sure that your response to him did not help. It only resulted in his node getting downvoted.

    Please mark updates to posts, rather than removing eixisting text and making additions. Note the 'added points' of How do I post a question effectively?.

    "Obviously, the previous responses DID NOT HELP HIM."

    Had they replied to any previous response stating this fact it would have been obvious. The concepts others outlined in the previous thread are directly applicable here, including their working solutions.

    Frequently people repost the same question over and over again for various reasons, including the fact they they're simply looking for someone to do something for them, rather than teach them how to do something.

    Update:

    "You can be sure that your response to him did not help."

    You're making more assumptions. Your posted advice for both threads in question doesn't even run.

      Hey, marto,

      Out of curiosity, I looked at other posts from you to virudinesh. Looks like you've been a busy little shiite, making sure EVERYONE else is aware of his mistakes by carefully taking the time to point to his other posts. Learning perl takes time and everyone has a different way of communicating and responding. If you don't like his, then just leave the novice alone and move on to others that you can effectively help. These kind of posts are ok once, but at this point, you are just bashing him over the head. Its not working.

      After looking at virudinesh posts, I looked into yours. Though you've been helpful, there are lots of your arsehole replys, jumping on people that are trying to learn perl. This drives people away from perlmonks instead of encouraging them to keep going with it. Stop being such a PITA, while pretending to help.

      Don't bother responding for MY SAKE. I'll don't have time for this BS.

      Anne

        This is quite the rash response. You're making yet more assumptions, a course of action which hasn't worked out well for you so far in response to virudinesh. Over the last few weeks many people, including myself, have spent a considerable time talking to virudinesh in the chatterbox, and I've also communicated by /msg. This is context you're unaware of. This issue has been resolved by various people, with various working implementations for several variations of the same question asked in the CB, scratchpad and SoPW.

        Every now and then people respond to historic nodes or ongoing sagas like this, where they don't have all the facts to hand, and jump to conclusions. In such cases they rarely land in the right place.

        "....making sure EVERYONE else is aware of his mistakes by carefully taking the time to point to his other posts."

        You seem to have misunderstood why I linked to their other posts, yet more jumping to conclusions. Working solutions and sensible explanations have already been provided. Pointing out that the core issue is the same as the last time they asked isn't unreasonable. If they had a further question about this, if there's something they didn't understand they're of course free to elaborate on their issue. A repost of the same question with nothing new to add gains nothing, for anyone. This is a reasonable frequent event. There's also nothing wrong with making others aware that this issue has already been discussed by the same person.

        Previously:

        "You can be sure that your response to him did not help. It only resulted in his node getting downvoted"

        If you've been a user here since 2003 I'd have hoped you'd have learned that post reputation is a fairly meaningless metric. Nodes get voted on for a myriad of reasons. tye and merlyn have some fantastic posts on this topic should you care to search for them. Constructive feedback/peer review of replies/code offerings respectively are the only worth while feedback IMHO.

        "I looked into yours"

        What sample size I wonder?

        "This drives people away from perlmonks instead of encouraging them to keep going with it"

        Vitriolic responses, offensive language and code which doesn't actually compile or answer the questions asked could also be contributing factors.

        "pretending to help"

        Ouch.

        "Don't bother responding for MY SAKE. I'll don't have time for this BS."

        So you can say whatever you want to people, but they can't reply? If you actually didn't want me to reply you had the choice not to respond to me.

        Apparently nothing is working for so long that the best result would be for virudinesh to leave Perlmonks and find a job he/she has any chance of handling. Street cleaning maybe. Virudinesh has asked the same question several times, was spoon-fed answers and solutions and apparently failed to learn anything at all. It's one thing to be fresh and another to be inept.

        Ah heck, marto. That was too harsh. Sorry.

        You have your own way of responding as well. And I jumped right on it. What a hypocrite.

        FYI, I only downvoted your nasties to the novice. You DO often give good help and I hope I haven't put you off doing that.

        Again, appologies.

        Anne
