I've submitted some patches to bring the Snippets Section in line with the other Sections, so instead of seeing just a list of titles, you'd be able to read the descriptions too. You'll also get the posting hints under the 'Add your snippet' from.

They'd need to be applied in this order

  1. parse_snippet_desc - (patch)
  2. listapproved settings - (patch)
  3. Snippets Section - (patch)

Also, I wonder if we should state more clearly the type of content that belongs in Snippets. Opinion differs among monks, but to me a snippet is usually something brief - e.g. a code fragment or a short script (but not Plot a 8/16bit wav file with Win32::GUI or Find images regardless of filetype extension.).

Any feedback much appreciated.

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.
