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

Added Note: Sorry, I didn't want to start a debate on gun control and end way OT. I was only making a joke about using a gun for day-to-day things like opening a can of soda. I was just exaggerating and being silly, not expressing any particular oppinion or datum.

Good thoughts! This reminds me of guns. Guns don't kill people, people do. But, there are many people who use guns regularly (i.e. turning the TV on and off without getting up or opening a can of soda) without injuring anyone. Getting rid of the guns might help with the crime rate, but it will make those day-to-day tasks harder.

Seriously though, I remember the day when software came with one to two inch thick manuals. There was an expectation that the user would read it before using the software. Nowadays, people think they should be able to sit down with something they have never used before and be instantly productive. Perl has a really thick manual. Those that choose not to read it, do so at their own risk. Those of us that do, reap the benefits.

Update: fixed some speeling erors.

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.
