  • Lubarsky's Law of Cybernetic Entomology:
    There is always one more bug.
  • Matt's First Law of User Interaction:
    What's obvious to the programmer will not be to the user.
  • First Corollary to MFLoUI:
    You haven't made it obvious enough.
  • Second Corollary to MFLoUI:
    The program's testers will ask the dumbest questions you can possibly think of.
  • Matt's Second Law of User Interaction:
    Users are evil incarnate. They will break your code, overrun your buffers, circumvent your error checks, and make it your fault.
  • Corollary to MSLoUI:
    Test your program with tame users first.
  • Matt's Third Law of User Interaction:
    Users will not be happy with your program unless they can make it behave like the program it replaced.
  • Corollary to MTLoUI:
    Every interactive program should admit, support, or include vi-like movement keys.
  • Matt's Axiom:
    The maximum amount of fun you can have writing code is inversely proportional to the code's immediate user base.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
