( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I haven't been at Perl long enough to write something to really be proud of over the long haul, but I think each one of us is proud of/pleased/happy with stuff we write every day, even, as Merlyn says, it's just for a few minutes. Otherwise, why crawl out of bed in the morning!? Even when I finish a little CGI form processor, and the client says, "Wow, cool" (because they think it's all magic), I'm proud, or at least pleased.

Guess I'll have to take my pride in small increments. Then later, I can write stuff that will feed the poor, bring peace to the world, etc. But for now, I'm proud finish something that uses strict and checks for taint.

Not to patronize any monk in particular, I'm often proud, by association, of a clever piece of code I've seen in a reply to a SoPW question. My reaction is to just chuckle out loud (strange looks from the family) and wish I had thought of it.

Write on, monks.

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.

    What does the "s" stand for in "perls"? (Whence perls)
