( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
This area seems far underused, but I need to cleanse my sins, really. My faults:

  • I have been an XP whore
    • I make sure to post detailed information that I may not completely understand
    • I've used up all my votes in order to gain experience, although I voted on worthy posts
  • I posted a reply to a CUFP that showed a faster, simpler, untested method of doing the same thing, with the simple comment "Untested."
    • I was trying to show off my skill, when I realised that hundreds of monks knew the same thing better than I; it was humbling
    • This one has been on my conscience for a few days
  • I have been neglecting reading the site, and have been unable to make valid contributions to help better my fellow monks

I feel better, having got that out. I'm sorry, all! Please forgive.

Who will not mercie unto others show, How can he mercie ever hope to have?
~Edmund Spenser in The Faerie Queene (bk. VI, canto I, st. 42)

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

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
