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

I have to admit, I hate the idea of the trailing ::.

If you're enumerating the ways to quote things in Perl, don't forget HERE docs:

<<HERE # Double quoted <<"HERE" # Double quoted, explicit. <<'HERE' # Single quoted, explicit. <<\HERE # Single quoted, uncommonly used. <<`HERE` # Same as qx or ``. <<~HERE # Double quoted, indented. <<~"HERE" # Double quoted, indented. <<~'HERE' # Single quoted, indented. <<~\HERE # Single quoted, indented, uncommonly used (I'll b +et you could grep all of CPAN and not find this). <<~`HERE` # Same as qx / ``, indented.

Which made me think, too bad we don't have:

<<~/HERE/x # Regexp object, indented, multi-line freeform (/ +x modifier).

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.
