( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Just a few of the ones I know

"It is said, "To err is human," That quote from
alt.times.lore, Alas, you have made an error, So I
say, "404."

Double-check your URL, As we all have heard before.
You ask for an invalid filename, And I respond, "404."

Perhaps you made a typo -- Your fingers may be sore --
But until you type it right, You'll only get 404.

Maybe you followed a bad link, Surfing a foreign shore
You'll just have to tell that author About this 404.

I'm just a lowly server (Who likes to speak in metaphor),
So for a request that I don't know, I must return 404.

Be glad I'm not an old mainframe That might just dump its core, Because then you'd get a ten-meg file Instead of this 404.

I really would like to help you, But I don't know what you're looking for, And since I don't know what you want, I give you 404.

Remember Poe, insane with longing For his tragically lost Lenore. Instead, you quest for files. Quoth the Raven, "404!"

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.
