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

I thought of that and wish now I had mentioned it in my writeup. There is no chance of a name collision in that example since the year, month and day are repeated in the new name. For example:

8_2007_10_22_15_34_23_Table_-_20071022_XYZ_W3.pdf 8_2007_9_22_15_34_23_Table_-_2007922_XYZ_W3.pdf

The new filenames for these two will be:

Table_-_20071022_XYZ_W3.pdf Table_-_2007922_XYZ_W3.pdf

Having the sorting correct only matters among the filenames that start with the same YYYY?MDD dates. The HH_mm_ss format seems to be consistent and therefore sortable with the default sort. I'm assuming that from the limited example data we were given.

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.
