in reply to poll ideas quest 2011

The first thing i tell an initiate in response to his/her first SoPW is

  • to use strict;
  • to use warnings;
  • to use diagnostics;
  • to ask for the data/arguments he/she used
  • to use the </code> tags
  • to even post some code
  • to at least describe the problem
  • to use the three-argument version of open
  • to at least check the return of open
  • that is forum is only for Perl related problems
  • that we don't do other peoples homework
  • that we don't help him/her to write SPAM scripts
  • that he/she is a spammer.
  • ...? What no! I don't reply to initiates!!1!
  • that i don't know this Perl guy either. Where am i?

Don't use '#ff0000':
use Acme::AutoColor; my $redcolor = RED();

[james28909]: like all the subs calling get_data get_array get_ect, you could just use get_data. once you send the data to get_data, check if it is a hash or an array ect. and do functions for each, in one sub
[james28909]: that looks like it would be alot more work than just renaming the sub though lol
[Lady_Aleena]: james28909, did you even look at the subs?
[james28909]: yes
[Lady_Aleena]: And you see how the first two are vastly different than the third, right?
