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

Then next time don't consider it with a reason of "useless". "Useless" doesn't tell me anything bad about a node. It tells me that the person considering the node could not think of much good about it but also was at a loss to actually describe anything bad about it.

And the person doing the considering is the one who must take the most care in evaluating what should be done. So if the considerer can't come up with any offense beyond "useless", my first reaction is to want to remove the consideration. When I investigated this one, I saw a reply from the considerer and it just emphasized the "useless" angle and went on to claim to not even know what the code did. So voting "keep" was an easy choice for me since "deleting" should require "harm".

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
