( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
This is a tough one. I know it can be dificult to answer a question over the net. Especially a newbie question, but that is the nature of the beast of asychronis communication. It's just a little bit slower.
Personally, many of the questions that I see being posted are questions that i once asked. The criteria that i look for is this, mainly:
  • Do they know where they are starting from?
  • Do they know the outcome they need?
  • What method are they useing to get there?

Chances are if only part three is missing the only need to learn perl, if parts two or one are missing they dont know what they are trying to accomplish, or they are actually a capable programmer and are just frustrated, or they need to learn to how to program. I think any one of these questions problems can be addressed in this forum, useing perl of course.

Be that as it may, I think we will find that the ones who answer questions here are bound to fall into differnet groups:

  • those who love to teach teachers
  • those who love to tech
  • those who love to hack

surely does that not bring together the "ends" with a good solid "middle"?

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.
