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

I was referring to abuse, not robustness. Like any other form of syntax or semantics alteration (operator overloading comes to mind), there are good reasons to have the opportunity (operator overloading comes to mind), but making use of it just because you can will easily create a maintenance nightmare (operator overloading comes to mind). And operator overloading is a relatively mild form of this. Perl 6 will allow really drastic interventions.

I am excited about the possibilities, but I hope people use the opportunity carefully. It'll most likely turn out to be one of those things you should not do unless you know why you not.

Makeshifts last the longest.

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!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • 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

    [LanX]: Plenty of "templates" realised with CGI-HTML-function
    [LanX]: well if you want you can fetch all XML and translate it to another board markup
    [moritz]: at this time, a migration could consist of only migrating the rendered HTML of nodes
    [moritz]: to a forum software that supports raw HTML input for legacy threads, and uses sane markup for everything else
    [holli]: yeah, then vroom will personally stab me in the back at night
    [holli]: exactly, moritz
    [moritz]: with a big table of redirects to support the old links
    [LanX]: do it
    [holli]: well if you put some cleverness into the migration you can auto convert most of the links as well
