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

Welcome to Perl and PerlMonks!

I much prefer to do my own research. Asking questions, like here, is a last resort.

I feel the same, but there's also no need to be worried about posting here.

I was told by some folks at that membership here can be tough.

Well, sometimes, but in my experience only when people are rude, spread bad information, and/or treat PM as a code writing service instead of a place to learn Perl. If you show your code (SSCCE), your thought process, and that you're learning from the replies you get, then as a general rule you should get a lot of help :-) Have a look at PerlMonks for the Absolute Beginner and How do I post a question effectively?, and feel free to ask here anytime!

Some things to get started:

My personal book recommendations for a programmer new to Perl would be: Learning Perl (optional depending on programming skill level), Modern Perl, and of course The Camel.

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;
