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

Just to add to what the other monks have said on the subject, this is from the CGI.pm docs:

There will be some times when you want to produce the start and end tags yourself. In this case, you can use the form start_tag_name and end_tag_name, as in:

print start_h1,'Level 1 Header',end_h1;

With a few exceptions (described below), start_tag_name and end_tag_name functions are not generated automatically when you use CGI. However, you can specify the tags you want to generate start/end functions for by putting an asterisk in front of their name, or, alternatively, requesting either "start_tag_name" or "end_tag_name" in the import list. Example:

use CGI qw/:standard *table start_ul/;

In this example, the following functions are generated in addition to the standard ones:

start_table() (generates a <TABLE> tag) end_table() (generates a </TABLE> tag) start_ul() (generates a <UL> tag) end_ul() (generates a </UL> tag)

I haven't tested it with every HTML tag, mind... ;-)

Update: here's a link to the relevant part of the CGI.pm docs (as suggested by PodMaster).

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.
