( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
It depends on the code. HTML for instance tends to get wrapped around column 80, except where that would break up an entity in an undesirable way. I tend to wrap elisp around column 120 or so. Perl code gets wrapped based on semantics, not column numbers. email is not, strictly speaking, code, but I tend to wrap it around column 70, because although *my* mailreader can correctly rewrap quoted text, some people with whom I correspond use lesser mailreaders. All of this changes in a web forum, where I use the width of the textarea as a guideline.

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
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;

    [perldigious]: Also coincidentally, I'm currently in the middle of a winter storm that has dropped 1 foot of snow and is expected to drop another. I might have to adapt this for customers/vendors who come visit and put it at the beggining of every presentation I give.
    [Discipulus]: the photo was removed... Cyrano de Berjerac was not of the same idea..
    [stevieb]: perldigious: video near our hq in Montreal. Here in Calgary, it's -28c... we've only got 3" of snow so far, but there are several feet in the mountains already
    [perldigious]: Snowshoeing time stevieb? I need to buy a pair so I can walk my German Shepherd properly through the country.
    [stevieb]: yeah, I snowshoe a fair amount in the mountains. I also use spikes similar to these very often as well
