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

"Don't we all cut and paste from the internet or our own old code or code on CD's that come with textbooks? Yes we do."

No. We don't. Especially stuff from 2003.

Things change rapidly in the tech world. You can not build something for today's world using something that came from over a decade ago, no matter what.

You can not expect something from 2003 to act and behave today like it did then. Even in 2003, the code you've posted was outdated. If you are creating something new, you'll need to get up-to-speed on today's technology. Being an auto-mechanic by trade (but out of the industry for many years), it's like showing an example of a carburetor from a vehicle, while asking for help on a brand new fuel injected, computerized ride. I'm also a licensed residential electrician by trade, and asking about the expansion of aluminum wires in a copper socket in today's world would also be akin.

Help may come, but with 14 year old code, you're pretty much going to be kicking a dead horse (imho).

To further, the code you did post was broken horribly, and wouldn't even compile back then. Even on the node I'm replying to, you still close off with a brace where a parens is required.

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.
