( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
A company so dark and stagnant,
Old code thrives, purely habit.
C dependency and hell,
FORTRAN syntax, biting smell.
Engineering frozen, not progressive,
Analysis no more impressive.
"Why, oh why!" I cry in boredom,
"Does my job feel so postmortem?"

Then shining through the sky doth come,
Perl blazing, light and fun.
Code is changed, tools rewritten.
No longer lost-library-bitten.
Regex here and context there,
Without our Perl, life is fear.
Scalars, arrays and even hashes,
Escaping habits with backslashes.

Oh will they see? Oh can they hear?
Perl prevailing another year.
"Rewrite the world!" This language screams,
I'll do my part and sleep easily...

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
