( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

After the positive popular response to two recent nodes, I would like to go on with a little "provocation".

Browsing around in the places where I thougth some good ones were (and with a little help from some friends), I came out with my very personal list of good nodes on their way towards the Best Nodes.

This list is most likely to be incomplete, but maybe somebody would like to contribute their own findings.

Author title rep
ferrency "Don't try this at home" (*) 246
footpad On Responsible Considerations(*) 245
btrott RE: RE: Things are not what they seem like. 238
Ovid Paradigm Shift - Don't use strict 234
chromatic How You (Yes You!) Can Get Involved 228
Erudil There can be only one! 227
Ovid 'our' is not 'my' 226
Masem How to RTFM 226
boo_radley SPAM eater 220
Juerd Perl cheat sheet 219
Abigail-II My coding guidelines 216
tilly The path to mastery 214
Petruchio Oh my God! Tie killed Perl! 214
btrott Tricks with DBI 213
gmax The fine art of database programming 213
jcwren Stats Whoring - The VXML Way 210
dws Do my homework for me! 207
gmax DBI recipes 202
demerphq Advanced Sorting - GRT - Guttman Rosler Transform 200

As always, comments will be appreciated.

After my post, ferrency's node replaced footpad's in Best Nodes. Their rep was respectively 241 and 244.
Almost all nodes in this list were upvoted (46 votes in less than 11 hours). Just to confirm that, in addition to their merit, it's this kind of "exposure" that creates the hall of fame list.

Update Feb 24,2004 something has happened!

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
