Per castaway's request:

General Guidelines for Picking Keywords

Since I have been starting with my writeups - nodes whose roots I've authored or to which I've replied - I have tried to take into consideration both the root node and its replies when picking keywords. (As opposed to keywording nodes which have no replies yet.) So...

  • Modules mentioned in the root node or in replies (those that are either the problem or a possible solution, such as "XML::Simple", for example); problems with modules (or installing modules) in a more general sense get tagged with "modules" and/or "installing".

  • "Automation" is what MS calls it when you use one app to drive another, so that's what I'm calling using Win32::OLE to drive an app such as Excel from Perl (since people more familiar with MS stuff than Perl are more likely to type that into a keyword search than the module name); plus I mention the module, Win32::OLE, for the more Perly types. In other words, I try to use keywords that people coming from "outside" the Monastery might try first.

  • If I know of a term(s) that is synonymous, I try to get that in, too... Like "Ngram" and "Markov Chain," or "course," "class," and "training"...

  • If there is a common abbreviation for something mentioned in the offered solutions (such as "LCS" for "Longest Common Substring", or "KWIC" for "KeyWord in Context"), then I include that... especially since "Longest Common Substring" won't fit in the input area for the Keyword Nodelet. ;-)

  • When the question (and/or solution) depends heavily on a particular method, option, or hash key (Text::ExtractWords minwordlen and maxwordlen re: "minlen/minwordlen - maxlen/maxwordlen" and Re: XML::Simple "transforming data" re: "NoAttr"), I try to get those in.

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! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
