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

I had a weird situation arise yesterday. I was using a CPAN module that actually was released by $work (and not me) as an officially-supported module. And I had problems with it in a not-$work-related usage. So the first question that arose in my mind was where to report this. Internally, where, in my case, it would get higher visibility and more likely to be fixed in a timely manner, or externally so that others that may be affected would see the problem was already reported?

In my case, I decided to report internally, and provided a short patch (minimal changes) as well as a longer patch (taking care of other stylistic issues that provided a more perlish long-term solution). I'm curious, though, how others have dealt with this, or would deal with it were it to happen, or just what the community would generally prefer?

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.
