( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Two important pieces of advice.

The first is to pick an indentation style indenting between 2-4 spaces, and then start using it. Now. Running your code through perltidy will show you what it looks like.

The second is to call functions with explicit parameters. That means using parens. As documented in perlsub, if you use just the plain & and in a function you call another function, that other function will get the parameters to the first as arguments.

Believe me. You may think these are picky details. But they are not. The first strongly impacts how easy it is to pick out your logic at a glance. The second is causing a subtle set of side-effects that may or may not be intended which a maintainance programmer may or may not know enough to notice.

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.
