That's how almost all usenet and mail readers do.

Almost all usenet and mail programs quote the original post automatically.
Almost all usenet and mail programs put some "Foo wrote" above that quote.
Almost all usenet and mail programs use "" to indent quotes.
Almost all usenet and mail programs do something special with "-- ".
Almost all usenet and mail programs wrap long lines automatically when editing or sending a message.
Almost all usenet and mail programs some method of attaching files and retrieving attached files.

Perl Monks is neither usenet nor mail.

I like the stacked "Re: "s on Perl Monks. I like single "Re: " for usenet and mail.

Update: PS: I'm not saying that Abigail should not edit node titles.

Juerd # { site => 'juerd.nl', plp_site => 'plp.juerd.nl', do_not_use => 'spamtrap' }

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Perl Monks is neither usenet nor mail.

    I didn't say it is. But it doesn't hurt to look away from one's navel and consider how others are dealing with things. And sometimes, others do it better, IMO.

      But it doesn't hurt to look away from one's navel and consider how others are dealing with things.

      Just like how it doesn't hurt to do things differently.

      Juerd # { site => 'juerd.nl', plp_site => 'plp.juerd.nl', do_not_use => 'spamtrap' }

        Just like how it doesn't hurt to do things differently.

        I didn't say it hurt things. I only said I (that is, me, Abigail, and absolutely noone else, not Perlmonks in general, not Juerd, just *ME*) prefered 'Re:' and gave some sort of rational. And that's why I use my priviledge to edit the title of the notes I write.

        I wasn't intending to unleash a revolution. Djeesh.

[choroba]: but undef %hash and %hash = () both work, too, but the first one keeps the memory allocated, while the latter makes it available for other parts of the program.
[choroba]: iirc
[perldigious]: karlgoethebier: Well it is a pretty old and complicated (for me) bit of code I wrote (poorly by my current standards), so I'm expecting everything to break when I add the scoping and find out what else is undesireably scope changed. :-)
[perldigious]: Ah, thanks choroba, that sort of thing was precisely what I was wondering when I asked.
[perldigious]: I didn't want to tie up memory unecessarily basically, I wanted to "delete" it specifically to free it up, and wasn't sure I was even accomplishing that.
[stevieb]: perldigious You should start by writing some unit tests. That'll ensure current functionality doesn't break with changes.
[choroba]: unit tests++
