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

Ever run into the situation where you (vaguely) remember seeing a snippet posted about something, months ago, and suddenly you need it urgently?

Such a thing happened to me the other day, and so I started to trudge through the depths of the Snippets Section. O! fateful day! It turns out that there is no easy way to navigate through that section. You add a snippet, it gets added to the first page. When the first page fills up with new snippets, the older ones get relegated to subsequent pages. When I embarked on this task, the oldest snippets were some 28 pages from the front...

Worse still, if on the thirteenth page you have to post a comment to the CB... you go back to the beginning again.

This drove me up the wall, so I decided to do something about it. I set about writing the...

Perl Monks Snippets Index

This provides you with a number of ways of viewing the Snippets section. As the resulting files are all static HTML, it should prove to be search-engine friendly, to boot.

Your comments and criticisms are most welcome. Please do not laugh at my HTML. This is about the best I could do.

Anyway, as they say, have fun.

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.
