( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I would like to note that I was not attempting to judge anyone. If someone is in need of a quickfix and google is their path, it is not within my realm of experience to tell them to do otherwise. I, myself, have been in need of a hack or quick fix myself many times.

The original post was simply meant to be something I noticed. Perhaps each post that inspired my view that people don't learn the basics was actually posted by someone who knows all of the basics and simply forgot them, or misplaced his reference sheet, or something. I will be the first to say that my own interpretation of things is/was/will be skewed and filtered in a manner that is pertinent to my own experiences.

I suppose I was not looking to single anyone out or judge them or say that developing workarounds is a 'bad' practice. I was just interested in hearing if others interpreted things the way I did, and if others also notice the common practice of 'time before beauty.'

As was so astutely pointed out earlier, </shrug>

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.
