( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am sorry to say that this is not as helpful as the title had seemed to promise.

You begin and end with questions and conundrums. That is not helpful in a tutorial. A tutorial should provide practical help to the naive but eager reader.

In the third paragraph you pose the key question: do you use the old way or the new way? Then you spend the rest of the post talking around but not answering that key question. I have read this through several times and I do not find that answer.

As I read your 'tutorial' and think about my expectations, I am aware that tutorials usually have one of two forms (either as a whole, or sub-section by sub-section). Either:

  • Problem
  • Solution
  • Discussion
  • Problem
  • Discussion
  • Solution

Your solution section seems to be missing. You have illuminated the problem quite well -- and that is worth something. But sadly, after reading your post, I find myself even more discouraged in my search for the proper or best solution.

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.
