I've been doing some thinking (uh-oh)...

Although there is a considerable amount of effort put into an answer, good questions should always deserve a fair ammount of XPs. If there were no clue-less monks in search of wisdom (such as myself), there would be no use for this site. Come to think of it, the term monk presupposes that one is in search of higher enlightenment.

Rating based on signal/noise (as you put it) might discourage the ardent to pursue knowledge monks. I suppose only the higher saints should be listed in a signal/noise ratio, while the rest of us mortals be listed by XPs...

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.
