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

ch 1, Perldoc: I think the windozers might appreciate a note that ActivePerl (and probably other distributions) contains and keeps updated a HTML version of the docs they can browse, accessible from the Start menu. And possibly even that they can create a simple batch like this:

@rem Save as pdoc.bat @perldoc -o html -T -w index %* > %TEMP%\perldoc_temp.html && start %T +EMP%\perldoc_temp.html
store it in a directory that's in PATH and then pdoc ... will render the documentation in HTML and open it in their favorite browser. I think they'll find that easier to read than if they stay restricted to the shell window.

ch 1, Implicit ideas, The Default Scalar Variable: "the three-argument form of print and say"??? print FILEHANDLE "text"; has just two arguments. In either case I would not talk about N-argument form of print/say, it's not the number of arguments that matters. print/say simply uses $_ only if passed no arguments. Fullstop.

ch 1, The Default Array Variables: s/Another default variable is available inside Perl subroutines; this is \@_\./Another default variable available inside Perl subroutines is @_./;

Enoch was right!
Enjoy the last years of Rome.

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!
  • 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
