in reply to Perfecting index.pl some more!

posting non-english text is quite impolite.

Also consider using <readomre>tags.

    Could you explain to me why posting non-English text is impolite? IMNSHO I think it more impolite to assume the whole world is, or should, make websites in English/speak English.

    All code is usually tested, but rarely trusted.
      because I do not know if his sentence is offencive for me or not.
      its obvious.
      You never know if he pronounced f-word or not (some programmers allow for such words in their programs)

      For each language there are gazillions of web-resources by their language. Many languages is good. I respect their languages. English is far not only language on the web!

      Also, I do have respect of people knowing many languages.
      But use wisely.

      In Nik's case he just did not spent enough time to clean his message. Hence that is twice impolite.

      PS. I am Russian and able to behave similarly. But due to respect of others I only say language understandable by others.
      Those are the rules!

        because I do not know if his sentence is offencive for me or not.

        This is absolutely ridiculous. If you cannot read it, it cannot be offensive and if it is, you can't read it so don't be bothered by it. It was not a reply to you so the chances that this was offensive and directed at you personally are pretty slim.

        You never know if he pronounced f-word or not (some programmers allow for such words in their programs)

        If I see fit for it, I'll include it too. Then again, why do you care that there may be some 'un-ethical' language in a certain piece of unreadable-for-you text? Believe me, half the world really doesn't give a shi^Hdarn about f-words. The other half shouldn't care about it.

        The question was in English, the code was in Greek. Thank god Nik didn't translate it all. I don't care what text he posts on his site. I like to see the problem as it is. Who knows an unusual charset is to blame for errors?

        I don't often agree with Nik, but on this, I think he has a point. It's totally useless to translate data into English.

        Translate all the Greek text or writing it in English?
        I have more important things to do and one of that is trying to correct my script all day 4 days now.
