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

That is exactly the kind of article that I'd like to see more of. The reasons I like it:

  • It examines code that I could have written
  • It explains exactly what the code is trying to do
  • It breaks the code into manageable snippets
  • It shows a better way to accomplish the same goal
  • It explains the better way to accomplish the same goal
  • It creates vocabulary to discuss the concepts behind better practice.

I would really like to see a section like this here, written in cooperation between an experienced perlmonk and a less experienced perlmonk. Naturally, the teams could rotate, and maybe somebody could choose at random the teams, granting extra experience on for a contribution that is worthy.

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.
