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

I'm going to agree with ysth's itub's comment: the node title "program line" was terrible; indeed I feel it fit into sauoq's category of "downright, unarguably terrible", as it was both too generic and too non-descriptive. The title "program line" did not, even vaguely, describe the question. The replacement title was better.

I also tend to think that supersearch should (if it already isn't) be "fuzzy" enough so that common misspellings of common words (such as occurrence) should all match; my bete noire is affect|effect, which I never seem to get right. Other people have other spelling blind spots (in one company I used to work for the accepted spelling of mnemonic was pneumonic; I actually had the correct spelling flagged by one of my supervisors). There are also spelling differences by region and dialect, so using supersearch to find "Syntax colorizing tools for Perl" should (and probably does; I've only used supersearch a few times) find the large node originating in Australia about "Syntax colourising tools for Perl".

One category of node title change I would add is that node titles in the instant messager version of English should be re-titled.

Is there an English to IM translator out their? Who is up to writing Lingua::English::IM?
