PerlMonks

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

If PerlMonks were a newspaper, then each day most of the items on the front page would be the same as yesterday and turning to page two would just get you the things from the front page of a week or more ago. That makes a lousy newspaper (and makes a lousy web site, which is the point of fighting this meme of fear of putting merely ordinary questions, the lion's share of the point of this site, on the front page).

Your analogy is horribly broken and doesn't come close to matching how the front page is actually used here.

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.
