( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
gaspodethewonderdog++, wonderful idea! You know, I have a good number of textbooks from college that are in good condition and fairly new, maybe I'll donate them all. Plus a few duplicates in my O'Reilly zoo. I've spent enough time at public libraries that it feel right to donate a bunch.

I think books like merlyn's "Learning Perl" may be better then reference material like the cookbook, since that would be something to get someone hooked, not something that a person would take out for an extended period because they want it while coding. I know personally that once I 'Perled', I wanted the whole O'R collection myself.

Time to go and find out about my library's donation policy. Heck, maybe it's good for a tax break if I give enough, though that's not why I'm doing it.

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.
