( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
One thing that may surprise most people is that my programming skills are self-taught. I know only enough programming and enough writing and enough math to have solved whatever problem was facing me in the trench that day. Luckily, I learn really fast, but I just have to have the right problem to chew on, and see the proper "next steps" so I don't get completely swirled.

So, those of you with letters after your names have an advantage, because you got some book learnin' that I haven't gotten around to doing yet. That's what I was hoping to leverage from here.

It occurred to me that the problem might be small enough that some sort of more direct (non-genetic) algorithm might do the job, but I knew that this "bear of very little brane" would get a faster result by applying things that I could learn in an afternoon, not a week. {grin}

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.
