LOL... I had this sudden image of some sort of programming version of Paradise Lost with thousands of Perl Programmers flying around with wings battling the forces of Java and being cast into The Pit:

If thou usest Perl; But O how fall'n! how chang'd
From one of Java, who in the happy Realms of Light
Cloth'd with transcendent brightnes didst outshine
Myriads though bright.

So spake th' Apostate Anonymous Monk, though in pain,
Vaunting aloud, but rackt with deep despare.

With suddenly tilly rising up and saying
Better to reign with the CPAN, then serve with the JDK!

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.
