Good start. I would like to add:
When posting code or preformatted text, do *not* use <PRE> or <TT> tags. Use <CODE> tags instead.
Treat the other monks with respect. Don't waste their time and they won't waste yours.
Please take the time to read the friendly manual. There's a wealth of knowledge provided with your standard distribution. Use it. If you're not sure where to start, type this from your command line:
% perldoc perldoc
You might also check a few of the links in this post and in this thread for additional ideas and guidelines.
Also, when composing lists of paragraphs, you might consider adding <P> tags to your <LI> content, as was done above and in my reply to that thread I mentioned. (I'm turning into a crotchety old hack and personally find that easier to read than bullet points that are crammed together.) YMMV, of course. :)
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:
You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
- 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
