Section Descriptions

The Snippets section has a wonderful description of what it is for. A few other nodes do as well. Many, however, don't. I think that either
  • Each section (Code, Library, etc) should have such a description, OR
  • The Site How To should have those descriptions.
This node says "(I realized that this is Code instead of Craft..." and I'm wondering how they came to that realization, since I have no clear idea what the difference between the sections is (they both appear to have postings of code and discussion about it)

    I agree that the distinctions between code and craft are pretty blurred. Also Seekers of Perl Wisdom and Q&A are similarly, er, similar.
    Perhaps the Craft section should consist of shining examples of code which high level monks have selected from throughout the rest of the monastery and is not posted to directly? ie a sort of moderated 'hall of fame' for code.
    Update: I've just noticed that the Guide to the Monastery gives a brief outline of each section.
      Good find. I did a search, but didn't think to look for "Guide". Vroom, can we link to this via the Need Help?? link?

      Update: Taken care of. Thanks Vroom!

Separation of Craft and Code
by Corion (Pope) on May 31, 2000 at 18:15 UTC

    I created that node as I first posted my Code under Craft.

    The criterion I used for discriminating was, that Craft seems to be more like a snippet and not always full working code, but all in all, it should be (IMO) short code, no longer than 20 lines.

    Code on the other side can be whatever it takes.

    Of course, that's just my opinion and not the official statement ...
