in reply to Newby Query Comment

If you ask an honest question do so with no fear. Expect --for the following non complete list of offences:
  • Posting off topic, perl is the topic.
  • Posting a faq. User the Search and Super Search try to find the answer to your question first.
  • Not trying yourself, show that you have done some work post cut down code links to show your analysis of the problem.
  • HOMEWORK.. passing work onto PM will never be tollerated except when it is ;-)
Dont hide around the monastary come post talk enjoy the community, I sure do. Having looked at the questions you have posed so far they all look find, the only dodge question is How do I reset an array? that could be seen as a FAQ. Keep on plugging, you will be a saint before you know.

If you do get -- take a quick look to see why to try and learn from it but dont look to hard or long. Stuff happens dont let it fret you. PM is a very welcoming place, it is just a bits scary when you start.

    You might add one more bullet:

        Posting a question that's so vague as to be unanswerable.

    Admittedly, this is dificult for a "newbie" to avoid. But one still has to aim for "enough information and not too much".   (That seems to me to be more of the problem with How do I reset an array?.)

    But yea, most of all: Don't Sweat the Downvotes -- If they make sense, learn, but just keep going.
