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

Thank you for posting that. It's nice to be reminded that we've all got things to learn about Perl, programming, and good citizenship in general.

I would hope that all code (and commentary) is open to review, analysis, and perhaps even a little golfing. I've noticed, though, that some are more open to it than others. While we ocassionally discount the responsibility of seniority and celebrity, I believe that by being open to the feedback of our peers, aware of the context such feedback occurs in, knowledgeable of our own limitations, and willing to adapt accordingly, we encourage such feedback. In turn, we grow our skills and continue to learn. (That's really the whole point, isn't it? If you already know all there is to know, aren't you just wasting your time?)

At any rate, thanks. It'll be quite some time before I'm ready to try golfing any of your code, but I will do my best to ask questions if I see something that strikes me as a little odd.

Consider it a payback, hopefully with interest.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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