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

If I always wanted to write modules, I'd use Java. Perl is useful because I don't have to write a bunch of code to get something done.

If you don't write a lot of scripts, this might not seem like a big deal to you. I'm not going to spend the extra time on the majority of my one-offs and quick and dirty scripts because I'm not going to use them again. I'm more interested in getting work done then spending quality time with my keyboard.

As for planning one from the start, may we all live in such a perfect world. Unfortunately, not everyone does, and pretending so ignores a great many people who could use a map to better code.

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.
