Problems? Is your data what you think it is?

comment on

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

A typical scenario for me:

I'll first go over a problem mentally and do some simple debugging. If that reveals nothing, and if I have any inkling of an idea what my problem is related to, I'll try `perldoc'. If that fails to give me anything or if I feel I need a better explanation, I'll do a 'Super Search' here. If I can't find anything useful here, I'll Google for it; usually doing a 'group:comp.lang.perl.misc' search on Google Groups first, and then a general web search thereafter. Finally, if I still can't find anything, I'll post a question here. Many times, just getting my question/problem out of my head and onto something in front of me will reveal the answer.

I'm a musician, and not a programmer, by trade. I program in my spare time because I enjoy it, so I don't have the luxury of asking a co-worker, and none of my friends are programmers. This leaves me with only documentation and the internet for assistance.

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:
