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

I've got the following little test, but i cant seem to get it to print a backspace in the textarea field.
Does anyone know if this is possible?

#!/usr/bin/perl $| = 1; use strict; use warnings; print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"; print "Starting Test<br>\n"; print "<textarea rows=1 style=\"border:1px #FFFFFF solid; overflow:hid +den;\">"; my $count = 0; for (my $i = 1; $i <= 16; $i++) { print "."; $count++; print "\b\b\b\b" if ($count == 4); $count = 0 if ($count == 4); sleep(1); } # end-for print "</textarea><br>"; print "Completed Test!\n"; exit(0);
Also, on a side note, could someone tell me how to combine these two lines into one :) ;
print "\b\b\b\b" if ($count == 4); $count = 0 if ($count == 4);
I guess i could do:
if ($count == 4) { $count = 0; print "\b\b\b\b"; }
but it seems somewhat inelegant.


In reply to print a backspace in nph-"HTML"? by rsiedl

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.
