( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I couldn't help adding some authors of non-English master pieces. Well, may be not.

Just want to add/second some thoughts:

  • I aslo found the similarity between coding and other forms of writing. When someone says "I can only write, not read", we know it's a joke. But I've seen so many, actually maybe a majority of software engineers, who never ever read someone else's code. I always wondered how they can grow. The greatest thing of the internet and open source for software engineering is that it provides a free school that is better than that ever existed. Yet many of us fail to take advantage of it. So I appreciate the desire to read good code.
  • Like reading, I believe the capability to appreciate a good style grows with time. For coding, one just needs to make enough mistakes, and even write enough bad code to be able to write good ones. It helps a lot if there is someone looking over your shoulders.
  • PM is probably one of the best places to get a glimps of what some good codes look like. Like books, most examples are short, but one can get the essense.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
