in reply to Highlighting the Q&A

I like the notion of differentiating Perl FAQ (or How-To, or whatever) from Perl Monks FAQ.

By the way, I wasn't trying to be snarky when I responded to the op. When I first came here, I did what I try to do whenever I enter a new forum (and as suggested at the Monestary Gates): I read the site documentation.

I get upset when I read posts asking for homework solutions, who don't use <code>, who don't Super Search first, who don't do a Preview before posting... in spite of hat the site documentation says.

My response was an attempt to be both helpful, and to point toward a useful resource.

    A preview is good. It often picks up typos like <code> instead of <code> for example. ;)

    Perl is environmentally friendly - it saves trees

    Spell checking is also a good idea.
      You should suggest the addition of a spell-checker, then.

      (rather than the what I meant) would pass such a test... 8-)

      But that's nit-picking, as opposed to suggesting the FAQs actually be read...

        If you are going to nit pick it would have picked up

        "Monestary" and suggested "Monastery"

        But I'm a fine one to talk as regards spelling!
