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

Since Perl6 will treat any code as "old code" unless it starts with one of the new keywords, I'd suggest this site operate in that spirit. All code is Perl. Some is explicitly marked as being a new type of perl. Lack of such a mark indicates a compatibility with the old language.

Two technical helpers I'd propose:

  • A checkbox above the "Your text:" could mark a node submission as relating to Perl6. Otherwise, let everyone assume (and comment) on Perl as they're familiar.
  • The searcher, and the Monk's viewing settings, can and should be able to filter on that Perl6 flag. You could then ignore anything Perl6-specific until it's released, or you could ignore anything not Perl6-specific if that's what you want to see.

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.
