I hate to tell you this but Wikipedia is not proof. Yup, it's great for all sorts of things. Usually you get some kind of middle of the road analysis that gives you a general idea of what's going on with "whatever you're researching". On the other hand, anyone can edit and there's really no way you can trust what "wikipedia says today". Not to mention that all things cited in wikipedia always fall a'foul (sp?) of what Stokely Carmichael had to say: "those with the power to define are the masters."

Oh yeah, and as far as wikipedia goes as some kind of font of truth, I've seen plenty of computer (and other) articles that I knew where just wrong. Oh yeah, sure, I should then try to go fix it right? but screw that, I have zero interest in playing the wiki political games.

Title:
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.
