( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
A while back I implemented a set of patches that have (unfortunately) caused some friction with the gods.

I don't know what friction you are talking about, unless you are talking about your own feelings. I made some suggestions for a better (IMHO) design which several people agreed with...

appear to be following Fords motto: "you can have any colour you like so long as its the colour I like."

Several people didn't like your patch and so now it is a policy to only apply patches "we like", eh? I didn't apply the patches primarily because I haven't had the time for such things. I bet I've got more of my own code that I've written and haven't applied than you have your own unapplied code.

I've certainly applied patches that I didn't like much. I've also regretted not pushing back harder in one such case, because now I can't fix a second problem until I undo the previous patch and redo it in the way I tried to explain several times.

You got lucky and got a few patches applied. That doesn't happen much for a lot of reasons still.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
