It was about time somebody said it %^)

In one of my recent posts, I took an interest and tested some code somebody wrote up, and much to my suprise, it did not work, and this was a craft. After some tinkering, I noticed somewhat of a logic error. I was baffled. This was a good guy, a good monk, and a good coder(as far as I can tell), and nobody called him on it. Not only that, it was one of those days with the newest nodes page with a 100+ entries. Maybe my tinkering is what caused the problem, but I spoke up. I fear it is far too common an occurance, that we overlook things like that.

So, I urge everybody and anybody, be you Anonymous, or initiate, check out the code you read/write/vote on carefully, and call people on it. You'd be doing everybody a favor, and more importantly, you'd sharpen your skills(which is what most people come around here for, that and the company %^).

Disclaimer: Don't blame. It came from inside the void

perl -e "$q=$_;map({chr unpack qq;H*;,$_}split(q;;,q*H*));print;$q/$q;"

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
