( #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":

  • 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.
