Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


I have written a script, which I will release as open source when its finished - I am having a lot of problems with some bugs and would really like it if anyone who can spare a little time would help rectify and improve some of my code. The softwae is made up of about 15 .pl files, but its pretty much the same errors in each..

If anyone would be able to do this, please post your ICQ or Email and ill email the script..

It would be very nice of you, thank you

    Hello there, Anonymous Monk. How about a fair exchange? You sign up for an account and give us a bit of information about you and then maybe some of us would be willing to share a bit of information about ourselves.

    We don't know who you are, we don't know what your code is about and we have no idea if our individual areas of expertise would benefit you. Perhaps you should consider getting a Sourceforge account. That would be more appropriate.

    Please post one of those scripts here. Also post what error message you receive. There should also be some description of what that script is trying to do and briefly, how it tries to do it.
