( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I didn't write great code right away. Sometimes, I don't even write good code now, and I'm always looking for feedback about what I could have done different or better.

The point is that a beginner does not rewrite an expert's code (CGI.pm here) and say "I have a better way". This is not hubris. This is arrogance.

Only when you understand why CGI.pm is the size that it is, can you build upon the art as an improvement. There are a lot of things that have to be done right to handle security; and a lot of others that also have to be done to handle portability. There's a cost to that, and you gotta pay the piper at some point; not cheat and pretend you can get away without it.

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.
