( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm admitting I've not browsed through the Q&A area much, primarily because of my perception of that interface being too opaque
I can't see how the possibility difficulty in finding an answer to a specific question would discourage you from browsing with no particular question in mind. I think I went through all of the Q&A during my first few weeks here. It's a great repository of information. On the other hand, I haven't really delved into the Tutorials section.

I agree that the categorizations aren't perfect; many questions might reasonably fall into more than one category, but are only listed in one. Possibly some cross-listing would help.

When someone asked you whether you'd tried Super Search, I think they meant for finding what you might be seeking in Q&A, not for finding whether this topic had been discussed. Super Search is another way of finding what you want in Q&A.

Caution: Contents may have been coded under pressure.

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.
