The idea that the source for any code should have some sort of license attached to it - rather than relying on whatever the local laws are - is a good idea. In code, implicit is elegant. In legal, implicit sucks. I'd like it to be clear what I can/can't do with code I find posted somewhere.

Another, much less flexible, option - the one used by the Linux kernel developers, apparently - is to have a blanket license on the Code Catacombs area that covers any code posted therein, and any poster has to click 'Accept' before the code is posted. Simpler, but reads 7 on the Policy Evil-o-Meter. :-)

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.
