Re^3: Question on Strawberry's Portable .bat fileby Anonymous Monk
|on Aug 04, 2012 at 07:46 UTC||Need Help??|
The OP is trying to get a better understanding of the batch file that you have to run in order to use portable Strawberry Perl.
Yes, the OP is essentially trying to learn batch programming, not trying to solve some strawberryperl problem he's encountered, and AFAIK, that is off topic
From my perspective ... That's just ridiculous IMHO.
Yes, I agree, because that is not the same perspective at all -- compiling perl, compiling modules, writing XS, is all clearly on topic -- having perlmonks teach you batch file programming is off topic
I apologize if the tone of this post sounds harsh. Just tired of seeing folks trying to impose unwritten "policies" by criticizing the person for daring to violate one of those "policies" rather than offering at least a little assistance to the OP. Decided to speak up for once about it.
Well, that is quote from the official policy, the "written" one that I linked, check your facts. If you have a problem with the policy, complain to the management.
And FWIW, I'm not sure how quoting the official policy is criticism.
And FWIW, I did offer both assistance ( Although, you can employ Basic debugging checklist even in batch file programming ( ECHO ) ) and the literal answer
So yeah, I too am tired of , well, of whatever your posting qualifies as -- inaccurately (libelously?) defending lazy off topic posters?
How hard is to copy/paste that line and put ECHO in front of it?
Instead of speaking up next time, consider saving it for a better fit.
