( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Another slightly distracting aspect of the fixed floating bar is that it's hindering text searches. The result of a backward search is normally scrolled to the top window border. It's really confusing to know there are hits but not to find them, because they are covered by the bar...

UPDATE: Just set the position to "Standard" in http://perldoc.perl.org/preferences.html, which really works fine! 8)

But testing reveals a strange phenomenon in FF3: While backward searching for "Comma" in perlop the second hit is not visible, because 2 lines at the top are not shown...

I'm completely clueless how to produce this effect. Does anyone else observe it?

Cheers Rolf

    [Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I already have the plugin installed, just not active.
    [shmem]: if you have 1 optional argument, place that at the end of the list. If you have more, go for named parameters.
    [Lady_Aleena]: 1 manditory, 2 optional.
    [Discipulus]: my ($need,$opta,$optb ) = @_; .. if $opta..
    [shmem]: all else leads to trouble, even if the third argument depends on the existence of the second. That may become brittle.
    [Discipulus]: but if have case like subname(15,undef,3 ) maybe bettere named parameters
    [Lady_Aleena]: I don't want to have to do: alpha_menu($hash, undef, $type);
    [Lady_Aleena]: Or what Discipulus said.
    [shmem]: Lady_Aleena: geany supports ctags.
    [Discipulus]: a good compromise can be my ($need, $opts_ref) = @_ a scalar and an hash reference
