Now you too can add Read More Links to root nodes

The Monastery Gates and other section pages often get excessively long due to long code listings or node authors who believe they have a lot to say. Now you can do us all a favor by giving a brief summary of all you have to say and then throwing a <READMORE> in there. Then we can keep the listings of nodes short and people who find your short summary to be of interest can click through to see the rest.

If you put this in a code listing close the CODE tags before your READMORE tag and then start a new set below it.

    Beautiful. Vroom, you're the man. (Actually, I deemed merlyn the man for his answer to Finding changed words, so I guess you're just _a_ man, not _the_ man. But you are one.)
      I'll let merlyn be the man for the day since part of my senior project is probably going to be allowing collaborative document editing and version control over the web.

[1nickt]: I have encountered a small code snippet I can not decipher: if ($?) { my $status = $? >> 8; ... }
[1nickt]: Hm, found the doc
[hippo]: >> is the bitwise shift, essentially divides the result by 256.
[haukex]: $? and system - the exit code of a process is stored in the upper bits of $?, so >> 8 does a bit shift to get at it
[hippo]: (truncating)
[erix]: aah, yes haukex++
