( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

As the author of the node in question, I feel I should say something. The only feature of 5.6 that Spork uses is our. For now, I shall stick a note in the node saying that it requires 5.6, but I'll eadeavor to work out the use of our so those still using 5.005_03 can still join the fun.

Also, though I'm far from a Curses guru, I did start to write something resembling a tutorial. For me, writing Spork was an exercize in reading manpages -- I would point you to the manpages on ncurses, as well as the curs_ pages (curs_window, curs_scroll and curs_attr were my only friends during that time..) Once I get some Copious Free Time, I'll finish up the tutorial and post it here.

Update: The node in question now uses globals isntead of our variables, and thus should work under Perls < v5.6.0.

perl -e 'print "I love $^X$\"$]!$/"#$&V"+@( NO CARRIER'

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.
