If you consider that a "rip on people", you've not been around here for very long.


On a more serious note... has it really gotten so weird in here that I can't even point out when code won't compile?

What boilerplate do I need to precede every posting with? Something like:

The following comment is never meant personally. You are not your code. I most likely do not even know you personally, and don't make presumptions about your character or habits based on a single posting. I'm only commenting on the ability for the code you posted to do its stated task, with particular attention being paid to :
  • Security
  • Maintainability
  • Avoiding needless reimplementation
  • Contribution to the community
If I sound like I'm flaming, please re-read the message a few more times until you see that it's about the code and the Perl community, and not about you personally. That is all. Thank you.
Would that help?
