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

I found this whole thread interesting. When i read the title I thought "yep, I agree with that" but then on reading closer it wasnt even what I was thinking at all! :-) What I thought you meant was all those aweful sub like

sub get_foo { my $self=shift; return $self->{foo}; }

and its correspondingly ugly set_foo. If you had been talking about those being evil then i would agree. :-) Perl offers fancier and IMO more intuitive ways to do things:

sub foo { my $self=shift; if (@_) { $self->{foo}=shift; return $self; } else { return $self->{foo} } }

(or a variant thereof, you can golf it down nicely. :-)

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.
