( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Your intuition that the code and data should be separated is correct. Data usually falls into one of two categories which should also be kept separate. In the first, any change makes all previous version obsolete. In the other, you have several versions of the data in production at the same time. (e.g. one version for each customer, user, location, etc.) Changes to each version can be made independently, but are probably rare. The choice of technology to store each type of data is not very important. Ideally, it should be easy for the responsible person(s)? to view and/or change the data, and difficult for anyone else. In making that choice, You also must consider what resources are shared by users of the data. Are they all on one computer, one LAN, or internet? Is it possible to share a data base?

I hope I have been a help in specifying the kind of information we need in order to help you.

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.
