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

FreeBSD doesn't support every module ever written, and it certainly wouldn't support modules that the user has authored himself. Plus, if you install from FreeBSD ports, you are limited to using the version of Perl that FreeBSD is presently supporting.

I really enjoy the power and beauty of the FreeBSD ports system, and use it very often. However, when it comes to CPAN.pm, it has its own beauty that often outshines even the ports system.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
