( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Actually, I too had a share of weird dreams throughout my 'creative' life as a programmer. Since after I started coding Pascal intensively at age 13, I would get those dreams where I would continue hacking away at a piece of code that I didn't quite finish in the day.

The most weird thing though is that there were many times when I would wake from such a dream, rush back to my computer and type out whatever I did in the dream.. and know what? many times it would work with minimal debugging!! I swear to it! ;-). Further, most of my toughest challenges were solved while I was asleep. Simply amazing.. nothing special, but amazing...

No wonder some companies are willing or even eager to claim and pay for any coding that takes place outside normal work hours (up to and including dreams!).

Title:
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.
