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

I also like this idea but I agree it has problems. Some of its problems might be quite serious. Does it become a binding contract? Who is responsible if the code doesn't work? Who owns the code? What happens if more than one person implements a solution? How should large projects be handled? Etc. Etc. Etc.

Really, someone could post a question like

I need a small script that does such-and-such. If a suitable solution is freely available, please point me at it. If not, I promise to make a PayPal donation to the PerlFoundation in the amount of $XX.00 if someone writes one for me. Any takers?
and they'd probably get help. The more I think about it, the more I think a separate section for this kind of thing might not really fit in here. Perhaps we could just let people know on a case by case basis that someone might help if they offered to make a donation...

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.
