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

As one of the authors cited in the nodes mentioned, I too feel compelled to reply. As it happened, I did initially post my node to PMD, which seemed to me to be the perfect spot for it (although if not I'm fine with that too). But once it was submitted I saw that I would not be able to edit the node.

Since I intend to update it periodically with new information, this was a bit of a disappointment. So I buzzed the CB and asked someone to approve it to Meditations. So if it's there now, it's only for reasons of editability. Even so, it's still my third choice. My second choice would have been the News section, but I'm 95% certain you can't edit root nodes there, either.

I wonder if these days it's still important to prevent PMDs for being edited a posteriori. For instance thepen's off-site archive records nodes more or less as they are posted, which means there is at least one way of identifying attempts at rewriting history. (Someone on the chatterbox suggested that PMDs aren't editable to prevent trollish nodes from being toned down).

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.
