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

Thank you for posting that. It's nice to be reminded that we've all got things to learn about Perl, programming, and good citizenship in general.

I would hope that all code (and commentary) is open to review, analysis, and perhaps even a little golfing. I've noticed, though, that some are more open to it than others. While we ocassionally discount the responsibility of seniority and celebrity, I believe that by being open to the feedback of our peers, aware of the context such feedback occurs in, knowledgeable of our own limitations, and willing to adapt accordingly, we encourage such feedback. In turn, we grow our skills and continue to learn. (That's really the whole point, isn't it? If you already know all there is to know, aren't you just wasting your time?)

At any rate, thanks. It'll be quite some time before I'm ready to try golfing any of your code, but I will do my best to ask questions if I see something that strikes me as a little odd.

Consider it a payback, hopefully with interest.
