print $user->{'pedant'} ? << 'END_RANT'

There is no plural to "athlete's foot". It is a massive noun, like "butter" or "foo".

END_RANT : << 'END_LEVITY';

Sure, the plural of butter is "butters" as in, "there are only two butters in this basket, but five breads." So, the plural of "athlete's foot" is "athletes' foots".

And no plural for "foo"? haven't you heard of foosball?

END_LEVITY

Hell, I'm not even sure if mixing here documents into trinary tests is legal, but whatever.

Title:
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.
