( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I think I see a minor bug.

For example, if I hack the code to add the following line after the my $curr_word = ... line:

$curr_word = 'QUOTE';
this has the affect of forcing a specific word, just for debug. When I run it, and guess the word "emote", it displays:
--- --- --- --- --- | E | | M | | O | | T | | E | --- --- --- --- ---
"M" shows up as gray, and "OTE" shows up as green, as expected.

However, the 1st "E" shows up as yellow. I interpret that to mean that the word should have 2 "E"'s. I expect the 1st "E" to be gray.

If I guess the word "smote", it displays the "S" as gray, as expected. Therefore, I think there is a problem when the guess has 2 of the same letter.

What do you think?

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.
