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

So you would rather someone else go through hoops instead, eh? I call that false lazyness. First of all, some of us don't even need syntax highlighting - i for one do use it, but i do not rely upon it. When i was cutting my teeth here at Perlmonks i didn't complain about not having enough time to review "noob" code ... i just ran their code through perltidy and rolled with it. It's up to me to find the time.

It's really quite simple you see, this kind of feature is one that you yourself can implement. Just write a CGI script that accepts a number as it's single param and fetch that node from Perlmonks with displaytype=displaycode. Run through the code through one of the many CPAN modules mentioned and display. Personally, i think this should be a requirement before one can become a Friar. ;)

UPDATE: One time only? Maybe if you are God ... but most of us mere mortals have to rely on testing and debugging before we get it right. And the more users you have to accomodate for, the more testing and debugging required. Not to mention the committee that must be assembled to agree upon what to implement and what to reject. Give your client an inch and they will want a mile.
