( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Well... it does keep the files neater. I think that I would prefer making an import mechanism. Most things that are filed-in probably aren't already in nice little packages.
Hmmm... import/export would work, but if there's no real reason to use END METHOD and the like (there seems to be a direct perl equvalent for each of your new keywords) it might make more sense to do away with the .goe format and just spit Perl out the back end. This would make the edit-test-edit cycle a bit easier, as you wouldn't have to convert .goe to pure Perl before doing anything with it outside the browser.
Then again, the way I have it is still sort of there so that I can see the source code. In theory they should all be stored in a more-binary like image file(s).
Would a Smalltalk-style binary image really provide any benefit here?
For instance, someone putting "END METHOD" in their method would be bad :)
If the need is there for special delimiters, one possibility would be to place them in a comment line. Something like:
#*# END METHOD
might work particularly well, as you can check for the special #*# comment characters as well as the specific tag, reducing the chance of false hits. Plus it's fairly nonintrusive, so you might be able to convince a module maintainer to accept patches that make their CPAN module compatible with your browser. =)

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.
