( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Many will notice that I was clever enough not to suggest how this might be done. Having looked over the comments, I agree that POD or some other standard would be great, however these ideas would all rely on the person entering the code to do work, and so far few do so. Perhaps they feel that since it is posted under their name they don't need further identification.

Ideally I'd still like a simple one line comment as I suggested originally, which would either be the first line or follow the #! line if it exists. This would ensure that all downloaded code would have at least minimal identification (sufficient to track down additional info). If not, then fundflow's idea is a good alternative. Since the Monastery already has this information, why rely on lazy humans? ;-)

Update: In keeping with my theme of giving credit, my apologies to BastardOperator for not reading to the end of his node above where he already mentioned automation. I blame society for my short attention span!

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.
