( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Should that not be:
tell ($alienqueen, "Stay away from her, you bitch!\n");

Has anyone read Chip Salzenberg's super article in TPJ on the Perl debugger where he prefaces sections from the article with with quotes from the Aliens movie? e.g.

STEP ONE: ENLIST
"... every meal a banquet, every formation a parade!" -
SGT. APONE

STEP TWO: KNOW YOUR WEAPONS
"I'd like to introduce you to a personal friend of mine."
- CPL. HICKS
This article wins my vote as the most enjoyable hairy technical article ever. Even if you didn't know perl, you'd still enjoy it. The guys enthusiasm, mastery of perl, and clear exposition really gleams... great stuff!!

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