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

Testing Opera and Android browsers is easy because emulators are provided on Linux. The iPhone emulator only runs on MacOS X so I have had to look at online emulators for testing. In addition, I have never owned or used an iPhone so I have no baseline of comparison for what should and should not function properly.

I tried iphone4simulator dot com first. Here is a portrait and landscape of the current PM. Looks normal enough so far, then I tried /bare/ and that is when the breakage appears. In both portrait bare and landscape bare mode the page background is grey instead of white. I am pretty sure this is an emulator bug because the other one I tried did not have this issue.

testiphone dot com is the other site I tried. It only does only portrait mode but the portrait bare version works fine. Now with this inconsistent behavior and no access to an iPhone I am asking the monks at large for help answering the following questions:

  • Does PM on the iPhone look like either of the emulators' screen shots?
  • Does the iPhone always start a web page zoomed in ?
  • Are there any better iphone emulators to try out?

In reply to RFC: Browsing PerlMonks on the iPhone by kimmel

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.
