( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
With respect to updated documentation: although I love being able to easily link to the documents, it also strikes me as innecessary that vroom has to keep updating them, when there is something like PerlDoc whose only purpose in life is to keep up-to-date documents of all things Perl. So I got to thinking: maybe an arrangement between PerlMonks and PerlDoc could be made, so that perlman: (and possibly perlfaq:) links take you to the corresponding page in PerlDoc? I don't how how easy it would be to integrate this into the Everything engine, particularly so that it keeps being transparent to the user (this is, not have to explicitly type "perlman:", but just create a link to the name of the function and have it do the right thing).

With respect to keeping different versions of the documentation, I think it would be a fantastic idea. I tried to find older documents at PerlDoc, but I couldn't find them. Maybe it would also be a good thing to suggest to them?

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.
