in reply to Golf: Improve this guy's fail . . . please!

On the one hand the code as posted at the top of this thread is not being fair to the poor shmuck who created the mess -- OTOH, the poor shmuck has it coming to him.

The biggest problem: at the originating blog page, Poor Shmuck didn't do enough (if anything) to escape the html-sensitive characters in his perl code (like angle brackets and ampersands). That's why the code doesn't compile as posted here (or as it appears at the originating blog page).

I can understand not taking the trouble to invent something as clever as our beloved <code> tags, but PS didn't even use <pre>... Could he really be fishing for a bad rep? I just don't get it.

    From recent personal experience with Blogspot, I was really pining for code tag; pre could only keep the formatting. Need to alter content of pre -- so that the content appear as intended -- is just too much of a bother; had to make a side trip to perl.

    Then again Blogspot does not seem to be oriented to post code, at all. I managed to not curse the frack out of Blogspot by much restraint. Until now, that is.   (~_~#)
