Pedantic, Eclectic, Rumpled, but Lovable.

Pedantic, because the details do count, but you should know those anyway.

Eclectic, "selecting or choosing from various sources", as in

"Perl shows its origin as an amalgamation of tools, for the purpose of being a more useful tool."

Rumpled, because lots of people have run their fingers through its hair.

Lovable, just because. I think it rubs off on the best of us here.

Altogether, like its creator.

I'm a pessimist about probabilities; I'm an optimist about possibilities.

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.
