( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
From the Noob perspective, in my first few posts (and probably many in the future) I spent a long time going between the FAQ docs and the preview pane. I think there would be value in a 'sandbox' area where Noobs like me can play around with the formatting. The top page should be an example of a 'good post' to which anyone can post replies (trying to emulate the formatting). The reply part is key, IMHO, since just creating a post is easy. Making a post that fits within the accepted style parameters and flows with the replied-to msg is the hard part. If sandbox clutter is a problem, maybe the replies could be autopruned in 12 or 24 hours.

<sigh> I'll be really embarrassed if I missed the existing sandbox.

Oh, and since I haven't said it yet... Very cool site, content and community! (Yea, that's right... I'm gunnin' fer paco and I'm not above suckin' up ta get 'im!)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
