( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
This area seems far underused, but I need to cleanse my sins, really. My faults:

  • I have been an XP whore
    • I make sure to post detailed information that I may not completely understand
    • I've used up all my votes in order to gain experience, although I voted on worthy posts
  • I posted a reply to a CUFP that showed a faster, simpler, untested method of doing the same thing, with the simple comment "Untested."
    • I was trying to show off my skill, when I realised that hundreds of monks knew the same thing better than I; it was humbling
    • This one has been on my conscience for a few days
  • I have been neglecting reading the site, and have been unable to make valid contributions to help better my fellow monks

I feel better, having got that out. I'm sorry, all! Please forgive.

Who will not mercie unto others show, How can he mercie ever hope to have?

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.
