Ahhh Brother, Welcome to the PerlSnobs.
As you will see there is a level of arrogance by some of the members.
Abigail-II? Come on!!! you should only post if you know the answer is right? People tend to think they are right when they post. This place was supposed to be about learning. People do learn from their mistakes! Well some do! ;-) A great way of learning is having your "answer" corrected. I have learned slicker approaches by posting "incorrect" ways of doing things.
So Nemp my advice. Trust your instincts. If you feel you are right. Post it. You answer will probably not be the best way of doing it(which some here would declare as a wrong answer), but if it works it is still right. The others will post their "corrections" and you might learn from them.
If you feel you are guessing, then post with a disclaimer. It will start a discussion might teach a few things to others.
Just my .02! I need coffee!
