( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I highly recommend something like (but not necessarily) Config::IniFiles so that those users who care to muck about in the guts of the thing (the configuration thing, not the code thing) can, and any web interface you might create will be able to work with it and not screw things up. This keeps the users completely out of the code but gives them a very high degree of control.

Asking users to edit code is just begging for trouble. You cannot expect the end user to know that 'user@example.com' is okay, but "user@example.com" is not, or that $things and @things are two different things. It's much easier for you to use a non-eval'd configuration file, and much less scary for the end user, too.

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.
