That seems like a terribly unfair assumption. There are many people who can craft good useful code who can't write worth a damn. You shouldn't penalize them for it, especially considering how many developers speak English as a second language.

Second, people may be withholding their code precisely because they fear being laughed at. It's hard to be a newbie! So if you offer a helpful answer that is bracketed by criticism, it is tremendously discouraging. I'd like to suggest to you that if you (or others) do choose to offer unsolicited advice on other parts of their code, that you do so with x-treme™ kindliness.

However, I must also say that I find your writeups generally chock full of information I can use! It is much appreciated.

Title:
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.
