How do you feel about the tone of that sentence? Does it sound as though there's a silent "you dummy" at the end?

in thread My nomination for the worst sentence in Perl documentation ever
I think I will send in a patch. But how does one patch the attitude that leads to sort of unhelpful--no, actively hostile--documentation in the first place? How can you tell someone "RTFM" when the FM is FU?
I had no trouble writing a watch expression that worked correctly, even with the lousiness of the documentation.
However, since the expression I was watching for took some time to show up, I was sitting there for a long while wondering, "Did I do it right?" Not exactly how you want to start a morning with a production system in a bad state.
