( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Online books were covered briefly in a node above, but that is where it is at! I really like the online versions of O'Reilly Books. Much easier to search for reference points, as well as bookmark. I find my traditional "dead tree" books start to look like ugly bushes with all the post-it notes sprouting from them.

Try the online books, the advantage is having things written with teaching/learning as a more focal point rather than documetation which has a different approach. They are both useful, and while good documentation is golden, a well written book is priceless, regardless of how it is displayed.

"Nothing is sure but death and taxes" I say combine the two and its death to all taxes!

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.
