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

Just something to complete this insanity:

sub steal_a_file_from_our_isp_that_charges_for_downstream_net_bytes_on +ly { my ($some_kind_of_uri) = @_; my @buffer; my $location = 0; while ( 'true' ) { my $done = 0; for my $val (0..255) { #-- 0..255: use a list with values sorted by highest probability # first for an incredible speed boost my $resp = query_server_if_byte_at_location_has_value($some_kin +d_of_uri, $location++, $val); next if $resp eq 'timeout'; return @buffer if $resp eq 'eof'; push @buffer, $val; $done=1; last; } $location-- unless $done; # 256 timeouts, so the response was lost + and we need to retry } }

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
