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

Most of the objections to perldoc can be solved by pointing people to perldoc.perl.org. I personally find it better than the perldoc "man pages" because it is easier to search, can be simply bookmarked, etc.

If you're learning Perl, the same site offers an archive of itself that you can download and run locally. Truly invaluable.

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:

    [Lady_Aleena]: I don't want to have to do: alpha_menu($hash, undef, $type);
    [Lady_Aleena]: Or what Discipulus said.
    [shmem]: Lady_Aleena: geany supports ctags.
    [Discipulus]: a good compromise can be my ($need, $opts_ref) = @_ a scalar and an hash reference
    [Discipulus]: see you monks!
    [Lady_Aleena]: shmem, let me get this sub rewritten, then I will look into how to use ctags in geany. Deal? 8)
    [shmem]: Discipulus: yeah, that might eventually prepare the path for OO ;-)
    [Lady_Aleena]: See you, Discipulus.
    [shmem]: Lady_Aleena: that's up to you. I only wanted to show you a path that might be more comforting than command line grep ;-)
    [Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I don't think any of my modules could be converted to OO. They are too procedural.
