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

A hammer is not a screwdriver. Is a hammer buggy or incomplete if it can't drive screws? No. Does it satisfy the requirement for a screwdriver? No. Is it a problem if you call a hammer a screwdriver and expect it to drive screws? Yes, for you. Not so much for the customer that had a bunch of nails and called them screws though.

It happens. It has happened. It will continue to happen. Customers will be delighted by the products they never asked for, customers will be disappointed by the products they asked for and never got. Whatever. That's business, and I'm an engineer. Whether that's good for business... meh.

Seriously, have you seen the Stanley FatMax Xtreme Fubar? I surely never specified that, but I still ended up with it in my toolbox. Sweeeet.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
