( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
See the first reply to this node for the documentation, see the second reply for the source.

Offsite copies are also available here: source documentation. The latest version ought to live here.

What I seek with this post:

  • Peer review of the code
    (I am aware of the general distate for capitalized vars; I've gotten better, look at 0.81 or ask wog)
  • Opinions on other features etc. (especially things listed in TODO.pod)
  • Need a name and good way of describing -S (currently CRONSOGGY); -S prevents the use of open(FH, "-|") which is believed to have an implict fork and is therefore not 100% cross-platform.

    I'd like to know if you have a platform that supports this but not fork.

  • Confirmations of functionality on various platforms.
    With minimal switches required to work; in order of increasing desperation: -s, -X, -s -S, -X -S.

    It is known to work on Linux with 5.005_03 and Activestate 628 on Windows 98.

    For bug reports please send the output and switches of however you were tying to run it as well as that from: -s -S -U -X -x 15 -L - (+ any other switches you may be using - whatever might conflict with what you're doing (-U if you're root?))

  • MacPerl people *cough* ChemBoy *cough*:
    You can set your switches via {startup volume}/etc/default/cron.
  • -- perl -p -e "s/(?:\w);(<A HREF="/">st</ +A>)/'\$1/mg"

    In reply to a cron; in perl by belg4mit

    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.
