in thread how to access elements in perl

This constant theme ... is tired, forlorn and counter-productive.

:) So what do you suggest?

    So what do you suggest?

    Give a little code to get them started.

    Something they can run and that almost does what they need.

    Encourage them to try and adapt it; or explain the problems they have doing so.

    Encourage their participation; not drive them elsewhere.

      He provided a working solution instead. Karl

      Yes, I saw that, karlgoethebier , what does that have to do with anything?

      Are you saying instead of asking for clarification, davido/choroba and folks like that, should just provide solutions, even if it takes hours "learning" the jargon just to decipher the problem?

        folks like that, should just provide solutions, even if it takes hours "learning" the jargon just to decipher the problem?

        If you do not understand the question, by all means, ask for specific clarifications, but don't fall back on generic, garner-a-little-XP, stock responses.

        More to the point, if you don't understand the question, accept that someone else might. Wait a while and see. If no one else responds in an apparently knowledgeable manner, *then* ask your questions. But don't take the high ground that, if you do not understand the formulation of the question, that nobody else could.

[shmem]: that's why it is called "Windows"
[stevieb]: shmem thanks for the 'insight' :P
[shmem]: good thing that Sun already took "OpenWindows", otherwise I'd not stop to shudder imagining an "OpenWindows" from MS
[shmem]: more garbage in, more garbage out that would be
[stevieb]: I found that win10 broke a C# library I was using for one project while enhancing tests for a Perl dist, which breaks other Perl dists, and I'm about to throw my hands up on berrybrew. win2k12 broke one thing, win10 breaks something...
[stevieb]: ...unrelated which requires replacing a lot of code and a whole lib. I'm about to go nix only ffs
[shmem]: stevieb: what you're doing sounds afwully complex. Too much for me this evening to provide brighter insight ;-)
[stevieb]: I don't even own a Windows computer. Both my girl and I have a laptop each with Linux. I'm supporting Windows in some of my projects and I can't even guage whether it's worth it or not.
[stevieb]: shmem It's something I desired to have years ago, which is why I took over berrybrew. Cross-platform build/test automation locally, or over the network Test::BrewBuild
