Welcome to the Monastary; we look forward to your contributions and appreciate any that help us improve our skills and understanding of Perl, as well as how to use it well.
Having said that, we encourage you to keep a few guidelines in mind when posting:
The engine uses HTML to render its content. For best display results, please format your posts using properly structured HTML. For an example, please view the source of this node.
As noted earlier, we appreciate any useful or educational code samples, however, that does not include code that destructively renames files, extracts passwords, or writes random values to the user's operating system files.
Please try to limit your contributions to those that help educate people in a positive way. Destructive examples aren't really appreciated.
While we have members who work with a variety of character sets, the site itself uses ISO 8859-1 (Latin-1). It appears the text strings in your original node have been converted accordingly, thus obscuring the intent. In turn, this may make things more difficult for the average monk to divine the purpose and results of your code.1
It is possible to use some Unicode HTML entities, however, browser support has always been spotty. In my personal experience, more numeric entities are supported than the character entities. Your experience may vary, of course.
We're certainly not against non-English contributions. However, you may receive more helpful feedback by posting code that does not contain extended characters.
1 - Update: Rewote this point, due to Chatterbox feedback. Thanks, jarich.
