The "We don't write your code for you" part. They have not specifically asked you too yet, so you are projecting your feelings and your interpretation of the situation onto them.

    Nonsense! (And by the way, read the FAQs... and replies to similar "gimme's" from some of the site's most skilled and supportive Monks.)

    If Q2 isn't a request for code -- albeit, implicit -- I don't have any idea of what to make of it... although I suppose the possible paraphrases of Q2 might include (in increasing order of likelihood):

    1. Please give me code
    2. I'm so computer-illiterate that it didn't occur to me to follow the link offered previously
    3. Why should I have to learn what you already know
    4. I don't wanna' experiment on my own. Gimme!

    Are you so literal minded that you can't recognize "write my code for me" when phrased in other words... or so bounteously generous in your assessment of others' motives that you can see no shortcomings in their utterances?

    And if so, well, yes. You're getting under my skin, but maybe you'll consider granting my writings the same generosity of interpretation.

    Nah, cynical /me doesn't really think that's a realistic hope.

      I think Perl, the right tool for the job? shows the dangers of assuming the OP is using code words for "write my code for me". You either failed to read and understand the question or worse, apparently based on the above, committed the sin of assuming malintent when there was and still is no evidence of it.

      If you think the OP is implicitly asking for code when there is no clear evidence of it then either ignore the OP or wait for the OP to hang himself by making his intent clearer. There is no need for you to make potentially false assumptions about the intent of the OP.

      There is no requirement to respond to a post, let alone provide an answer, so why do you feel so compelled to do so?? If you feel someone is seeking enlightenment, then help them. If not, then ignore them. In that context, what I quoted above is irrelevant.
