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

Authors: David H. Adler and Michael G. Schwern, from an idea by Adam Turoff
Version: 0.03

Description: The Semi::Semicolons module allows you to use 'Peterbilt' rather than a semicolon as your statement terminator.

use Semi::Semicolons; print "Why on earth would anyone use this?"Peterbilt

You can also customize your statement terminator.

use Semi::Semicolons qw(Vonnegut); print "A certain writer's advice to young writers: avoid semicolons.\n +"Vonnegut

(Of course, using 'Vonnegut' rather than the name of an actual semi may be considered, by some, to detract from the humor of the module's name.)

Why should you use it? You probably shouldn't, unless you're easily amused (like me).

Why should you not use it? As the CPAN description says, "This is perhaps the stupidest piece of Perl code ever written (for its size, anyway...)"

Verdict: Two thumbs up. Way up!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
