G'day eyepopslikeamosquito,

++ Marvellous paraphrasing: most impressive.

'... and contains an incorrect(!) leading space in " _".'

Given that he's requested pedantry not be overlooked, I'll just add:

  • ... and is missing the final underscore
  • ... and pointlessly and confusingly escapes the first underscore
  • ... and uses the wrong case for the first character
  • ... and, most importantly, is the only piece of code, in this entire thread, whose purpose and intent is not immediately obvious.
$ perl -e 'my ($v1, $v2) = qw{A B}; print "My answer is \"\_" . $v1 . +" _" . $v2 . "\"\n";' My answer is "_A _B"

Unfortunately, I can only downvote it once.

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.
