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

In case you're interested in significant historical relics, note that Semi::Semicolons qualifies, as one of the earliest CPAN joke modules ever released, so early in fact that it was released before the CPAN Acme namespace was created in 2001 to protect developers from naively deploying CPAN joke modules in production systems (though it still happens occasionally). Acme::Bleach, as the first module in the Acme namespace, also qualifies.

Update: Sadly, the primary author of Semi::Semicolons, David H Adler Esq, passed away recently -- its other authors are listed here.

More detail on the history of the lighter side of Perl culture can be found at:

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