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

I think a main point here is what you do with the code.

If you copy some code that is "open" (that is, it has no copyright attached that forbids you what you do), and you adapt it and use it, fine, good for you. Give credit to the original author, maybe mail him and thank him.

If you want to say proudly "Well, that is *my* code!", you will have to do better than just copy and paste. I like to think of this like of writing normal documents: literal citation has to marked as citation, citing ideas has to be marked by giving credit to the original authors.

"Know your sources" is the motto of those learning. And who would ever want to stop learning ...

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.
