  1. The questioner is smart. He or she knows that they do not know something. They took the first step.
  2. The questioner knows what he is looking for specifically, but may be making a bad choice. It does not remove the fact that they do not know something come the day they actually wish to do that. There are no wrong answers. TIMTOWTDI.
  3. The questioner may not be clear, or in some cases, given us too much information. Asking for clarification is not bad if you do not understand the question.
  4. The questioner can be asked questions so long as we are polite about it. Nothing is wrong with asking a question while progressing the conversation. It's typically done in sales. "I got you N, is there anything related you may need." "This is how you write a CGI by hand, but you may be interested in the CGI module as it makes it cleaner."
  5. Sometimes people are rude jerk faces and you are doing pro bono work. You are on the net where your reputation is all out in the open. You do reserve the right to end the conversation in a not-unkind way to preserve such. People frequently forget this.

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.
