( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
This morning, I was having a Windows XP problem, and the first thought that popped into my mind was, "Oh, I'll just post it to Perl Monks," followed quickly by, "That'd be really off-topic."

So, my question to you dear monks is:

When you have questions about topics other than Perl, where do you go for answers?

As I see it, the best features of PM are:

  • Easy access to newcomers, while still providing extraordinarily good advice for non-newbies
  • An extremely active user base (fast responses, and breadth of knowledge)
  • Good site layout (more-interesting/generally-useful stuff gets front-paged. more obscure stuff gets Super Searched)

Are there any user-supported sites like PM for, say, Linux hardware issues? or databases? or even non-programming topics, like legal advice?


In reply to Sites similar to Perl Monks, but not about Perl? by benizi

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.
