Preface: I did a fast research with the words snippet update, and didn't find any useful title. If this has already been asked just point me to the right node, thanks.
Days ago I posted a code snippet for which I received some advice by merlyn, Abigail-II and zentara (thanks guys).
I'd like to update it a little (a couple of lines or so) to make it work a bit better, but I fear that doing so I'd change the context under their comments, making them meaningless.
So, what's one supposed to do in this case? Updating the snippet anyway, putting in a warning? Write the corrected snippet in a reply to the first version? Write a brand new snippet?
Thanks for any advice
The very nature of Perl to be like natural language--inconsistant and full of dwim and special cases--makes it impossible to know it all without simply memorizing the documentation (which is not complete or totally correct anyway).
