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

A friendly request to all: stop throwing mud.

We are all aware that there are 4 parties here:

  • Those who don't like perl at all (we all know who they are)
  • Those who only like perl 5 or Perl 5
  • Those who only like perl 6 (by whatever name)
  • Those who like all variants of perl/Perl (but not necessarily use them all)

This poll was a wrong trigger, which is why I downvoted it. The discussions about the name are long behind us: it is a station past. Let us just go on and enjoy the beauty of both dialects of perl. If you don't like either, don't post negative comments just because you don't like it. Respect the choice of the other users.

I am really appalled by the comments I read in this thread that have nothing to to with the poll or the usability of either of our beloved perl versions.

So, can we please move on and post solutions here?

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
