( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Many will notice that I was clever enough not to suggest how this might be done. Having looked over the comments, I agree that POD or some other standard would be great, however these ideas would all rely on the person entering the code to do work, and so far few do so. Perhaps they feel that since it is posted under their name they don't need further identification.

Ideally I'd still like a simple one line comment as I suggested originally, which would either be the first line or follow the #! line if it exists. This would ensure that all downloaded code would have at least minimal identification (sufficient to track down additional info). If not, then fundflow's idea is a good alternative. Since the Monastery already has this information, why rely on lazy humans? ;-)

Update: In keeping with my theme of giving credit, my apologies to BastardOperator for not reading to the end of his node above where he already mentioned automation. I blame society for my short attention span!
