( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Great idea. Couple comments though:

You mentioned +2 for excessive comments. I'd personally -- for excessive comments. Excessive means that it's more than is needed, which to me means something like:

#loops through all the lines in a #file and prints them out foreach $line (@file) { print $line; }
I think the loop is self commenting enough (not that you'd ever use that). It bothers me when people over comment. You spend more time reading about what each line does than you do reading the program. Maybe something subjective like "effective use of commenting"?

Also, I think beyond the cut and dry "points", there should be a human critique on the style, flow, and as always, what could be better.

Just my nickle.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
