Problems? Is your data what you think it is?

( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am sorry to say that this is not as helpful as the title had seemed to promise.

You begin and end with questions and conundrums. That is not helpful in a tutorial. A tutorial should provide practical help to the naive but eager reader.

In the third paragraph you pose the key question: do you use the old way or the new way? Then you spend the rest of the post talking around but not answering that key question. I have read this through several times and I do not find that answer.

As I read your 'tutorial' and think about my expectations, I am aware that tutorials usually have one of two forms (either as a whole, or sub-section by sub-section). Either:

  • Problem
  • Solution
  • Discussion
  • Problem
  • Discussion
  • Solution

Your solution section seems to be missing. You have illuminated the problem quite well -- and that is worth something. But sadly, after reading your post, I find myself even more discouraged in my search for the proper or best solution.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
