( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Yes, and accordingly I thank liverpole for re-posting this excellent and historic tchrist article.

Maybe I've become worn down by the relentless drive to "get it done fast, no time for reading" mentality that seems to be becoming more commonplace nowadays. People asking where is the "business value" in mastering Perl subtleties and intricacies in depth. Sadly, it is only rarely I come across a youngster with enough passion to read the tchrist article above. It happened just the other day though, with a new graduate. :)

    [moritz]: specially if you're used to markdown
    [holli]: there probably is some nodelet hack that lets you use markdown :)
    [LanX]: a) well ... you can use the xml-version to get the original code w/o need of reverse engineering
    [moritz]: yes, and that's the next problem: there are piles of workarounds, but not solution, no visible progress
    [LanX]: b) you cahnge my wikisyntax to support markdown and stay PM compatible
    [holli]: see moritz, the , how do i put it, robust charme of this site is what separates the wheat from the chaff ^^
    [LanX]: I'm willing to improve the code, but we have a götterdämmerung at the moment, Corion is the only active god for some time now
    [moritz]: and everybody is like "if you just copy 250 lines of ugly JS into your free nodelet, and happent to know about it, there is a 40% that this workaround kinda works, sometimes"
    [moritz]: ... "so there is no need to do anything"
    [LanX]: and the code is a bit of a mess
