( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
At University one of my dorm mates was doing a PASCAL course and was told off for using variables like 'a' and 'b' in his programming assessments and was told to produce more descriptive names in the next assessment. So he started using 'this_variable_is_the_loop_counter_it_counts_the_loops' and 'i_am_storing_the_number_of_times_that_the_user_has_responded_with_a_yes_here'

the instructor stopped hassling him after that :-}

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
