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

I have to say I come from C and back then (yes! Then) without goofle and the free literature it was a lot of hard work to conquer the pointers. I can't let it go now. I have often debated internally whether thinking in C while writing Perl was a good habit/idea/practice. It is NOT. But when %$^$& comes to shovel I have to think of some ways to make it faster. Because I am too lazy to program it in C eventually. And these are some of the tricks I pull.

That's why my subs most of the times have a hashref of params as input (as opposed to array-style (file => 'aaa' , action => 'delete')) and I always return a hashref or arrayref or object back, but never ever an array. I think somewhere an angel dies when I do that. Cargo-culting perhaps, plus I am not a natural Perl-er.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
