( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I like the idea, but i'm a little annoyed by google on this one. First of all I use firefox 2 and 3, chrome and IE on multiple different computers. Three home computers, a laptop and a work computer. So in order to see this added content I have to install a toolbar on all of these and I don't install googles toolbars ever. The fact that it doesn't work in Chrome, googles own browser, is even more annoying. So while I think the idea is great, the implementation is certainly a no go for me and I'd bet others as we wont have the right toolbar and/or browser installed at all the places that it would be usefull.

Instead of all this, could we get CPAN updated to include the sidewiki gadget in some way? Maybe a good group of beta users could use the toolbar, add some content and then convince the powers that be to add the widget? I dunno. I do appreciate your zeal and zest though, it is nice to see someone this passionate about it all!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
