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

That the management is on your side is a big plus. However, it is hard to change people's habits. I think the final step that motivates you to learn something new for a lot of people is when the old way to do it becomes too cumbersome. I started using CVS when it was just too much effort to back up different versions, find out when I made a certain change etc. :). So breaking the old system is not too bad an idea...

I'd try to talk to management about this. Develop a plan together to introduce a better system. If your company is a professional development shop, I am sure they have coding guidelines, prescribed programming environment guidelines etc. It is hard to change a project that has already going on for a while. Why not choose a new project, maybe even with a couple developers that are still rather new to the company, and try to implement some of your changes there?

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.
