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

Well, actually, I don't think I am assuming that the poster hasn't read the FM; rather, I am suggesting that a post whose answer is obvious -- from the documentation's text or examples (IOW, in the FM) -- strongly suggests that the poster has not RTFMed (or has not RTFMed will diligence). Yeah, that's a lot of qualifiers... almost to the point of making a distinction too fine to worry about...

But you are not the usual poster of what I call 'gimme' questions -- questions that are or are tantamount to "Please write my code for me;" "please do my work for me;" and "I'm ignorant of the existence of the FM." I think the distinction is obvious... and if you post one that falls in the class to which I'm objecting, then I'm going to assume that the issue is a momentary case of brain-lock, not to laziness.

And a request: within the class of well-written docs -- that is, those with decent examples and explanations -- re-examine your last para. Lord knows, I'm as likely or more so than most, to blindspot myself while reading a doc, but (YMMV) find that re-reading a well-written doc ofter provides a face-palm moment when the scales are lifted away.

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.
