Everyone interprets answers differently -- it could be that answers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 don't help the OP, but #6 is 'just right'. According to your post, the respondent who actually helped the OP should get downvoted. I disagree.

In addition, any one of those posts could start sub-discusions of their own, leading to more 'discoveries' by people going back, re-reading the entire thread and adding their comments.

My suggestion to you is to downvote posts that are inflammatory, useless and/or wrong; to upvote posts that are useful, insightful, or even funny; and to ignore posts that seem to repeat the same answer in subtly different ways.

And don't worry about XP. Perl Monks is about learning, exploring and sharing Perl; it's not about the XP.

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.
