( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Great little anecdote, I love it :)

I'm one of four people in my office that write Perl code, but I'm the only one that is a regular at PM. Because of this (I believe), the others often come to me for advice. And I've had lots of similar little episodes. One in particular I remember was when of my cow-orkers wrote a script that jumped through all sorts of convoluted hoops attempting to parse and update a DNS zone file. When he eventually gave up and came to me for advice, I asked him why he simply didn't just use Net::DNS? ;)

Although I've never heard those exact words ("going all PerlMonks"), I've had plenty of looks that tell me that's exactly what they are thinking at the time ;)

Were you tempted to ask her exactly what she meant by that comment? It would be interesting to hear her answer.

Darren :)

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.
