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

Start with ... web research.   Given that you know, both that you are venturing down a well-known path, and that you nevertheless do not yet know where the rocks are ... make it your first business to look before you leap.   Do your homework.   Avail yourself meticulously of everything that the web has to offer, then, by all means, come back here.

Also:   gather information before you attempt to react to any of it.   Recognize that you are getting into the swimming pool for the very first time.   There is no shame in this, because of course every one of us started out in the selfsame way.   But there is in this the stern admonition that you have much to learn, and that you very much need to hold your enthusiasm in check.   Gather information for ... say ... at least two consecutive weeks of working-time ... before you attempt to respond to any of what you have gathered.

You are in a pool for the first time, but you are hardly the first one to take a swim.   There is deep water here, and there are shallows.   Lifeguards are on duty at some (clearly posted) times but not others.   A stack of life-vests is stacked neatly nearby, along with water-wings and other goodies.   A poster on the wall by the restroom describes swimming-lessons that are offered twice a week.   You are going swimming for the first time, but you are clearly also surrounded by resources, information, and experience.   Plan Accordingly.   Success favors the well-prepared.   (The others drown very narrowly escape.   I hate sad endings.)   No one can learn to swim just by reading a book about it but ... hey, this is a pool at a resort! ... you can read that book at your leisure, sitting by the pool and sipping a nice foo-foo drink with an umbrella in it.   (It’s your fantasy, so why not?)

During the next calendar week, make it your business to have read at least five hundred postings on this site, and at least five hundred on other sites, before you attempt in any way to “do” ... absolutely anything.   Even if you feel beyond a shadow of a doubt that you understand what to do ... perfectly.   Assume, please, that you (don’t yet know that you...) don’t.   Please.   Do not ask me why, do not question.   Just listen.   Just.   Please.   (You will thank me.)   (I think.)   (Having done this crazy thing for thirty-plus years now, I’m probably right.)   (I think.)

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.
