( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

In spite of what you see over cappucino in a bookstore, all programming languages are difficult to understand, especially at first. They are “human languages,” after all, and so they carry a lot of idiomatic meaning.

As “native speakers,” we need to try to remember the “Perl As a Second Language” folks. (After all, plenty of times, they are us!) That's why comments are so important. And also, test plans. It does not hurt the Perl compiler in the slightest to pass-over any number of comments and PODs.

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.
