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

This is an idea from the chat which I'm writing up to get more feedback from the rest of the populace :

It would be convenient on the chat to have "Whiteboard" or "Scrap" nodes, that will last only 2 hours, to post ad-hoc sample code or larger snippets, that don't validate a question to SOPW or Q&A.

Of course, it is currently possible to post such code on the home node, but some people have stuff on their home node and modifying the home node just for some ad-hoc code isn't really convenient


Now my opinion on this

No XP are given for creating/modifying a "Scrap" node

Every (logged in) user has a "Scrap" node accessible under [Username Scrap Node]

These nodes would be automatically deleted by the engine - if something is worth keeping, create a different node for it and gather the XP for it ;)

No links _to_ the scrap node should be possible from permanent nodes - at least, it would be unwise to do such links ;)

Only the creating user has write access to his/her home node.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
