( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Recently several obfuscations have ceased to work correctly, for instance Codici obfuscati and Abberwockyjae by me and *Yawn*, more late night obfu. by lindex (before chipmunk's edit). The problem is linked to the ^M's that are being spit out by the XML generator.

In the case of lindex's code, the ^M at the beginning was causing the problem, and chipmunk was able to suppress this by having the code start directly after the <code> tag. In the case of the two Perligata obfu's I mention, the problem lies in the ^M after the "finis" and before the start of the DATA. I can't seem to find a way to suppress this from within the edit box.

Codici obfuscati actually worked when I first uploaded it, (I downloaded it to check...). Now, however, I get an error (Accusitive not connected at line 20). (The error in the other program complains about "Something barbarous (i.e. punctuation) found" in the DATA lines.) Thus, I assume that this is a recent change, but one that I hope can be fixed.

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.
