All my Perl code can be understood by the Perl compiler. Since the average computer has considerably less processing power than almost any tetrapod, my dog should be able to read and understand it. He can't, and I would be challenged six months later if it weren't for my habit of including a reasonable number of not too cryptic comments.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

  • 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:
