( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
After being told to use strict and declare everything with my, a beginner will go out and do just that. Declare everything with my
Rather than telling them to 'declare everything with my', it would be more correct to simply say 'declare all of your variables'.
Then provide an example, such as:

It reminds me of pre-school; my $lollypop is all MINE! Nobody else can decrement it.
I'm sharing my blocks, so they are really our @blocks; now. Everybody in the room can push and shift them.
And my friend Perl is sharing his @ARGV with me. Look; he put a '-help' behind the first door, how cute.

The point being that variables, like toys, only need to be created once. The people you are sharing with don't need to buy/declare it, because you did that already.
Ownership and sharing are things we learned in kindergarten (hopefully!). Once the connection is made, it should be pretty natural.

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.
