( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hello monks... I've been testing the new perl release and I don't like it! I was wondering if anyone else had some concerns with it? The biggest downfall I think is how the ppm has changed.... being on a windoze system ppm 3.0 is a whole lot easier than the new 3.0.1 ppm. Some issues that changed were how modules are installed and how repository's are set. why do they change something that works??? I thought changes were made to flaws or what not, but why change the syntax of things?

Is there a way to suggest to go back to the way it was??

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
