( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

fwiw, I take your warnings very seriously. I read them and re-read them until they start to make sense. I am not a groupie, nor a hero-worshipper. I'm just an experienced programmer who recognizes someone with far more experience with a language. You know what you're talking about wrt perl. I don't. Tread into my territory and we can trade roles. Nevertheless, please do not get discouraged because of mindless jerks who'll be the first against the wall when the revolution comes. Take a note from Harlan Ellison, do what you feel is right ahd the rest will follow (as someone just reminded me in CB). Those that matter will recognize the basic integrity and appreciate it.

ftr, I am, in many ways, a newbie (dare I say, "tyro") in this language. I have been asked by my bosses to produce production ready CGI scripts and it scares me to see just how insecure they are. Not because I'm an idiot, but because I didn't know. Given your earlier warnings, I understand things a little better. But there are many issues that are not completely straight-forward, obvious or clear for the novice. this is a frustratingly subtle language and managers do not appreciate that.

Please don't stop trying to help.

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.
