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

If I had been there, the conversation would have gone something like this.

name used only once

You are either putting data into a variable and not getting it out again (which seems pointless) or trying to get data out of a variable that you haven't put data into (which seems stupid).

global symbol requires package reference, things like that

Your code has variables that can be (accidently!) used outside of the necessary scope. This is dangerous.

It cluttered up the SYSOUT and made it hard to find the real bugs

This are the real bugs. Fix them.

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