( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Heh ... I'm the kinda guy who watches the oscars and grammies presentations just wishing they'd get realistic and tell us what the worst picture was, and what the worst album was.

So, naturally, I'm thinking that we need to poll the feature that would least be missed. And it occurs to me that pretty much the same list of options could be provided. (Ooooh ... I'm such a baaaad person ... and was so near to making friar ....)

Anyway, the thing that I would least miss is "statement modifiers". I don't bat an eyelid when I see (on Win32):
if(0) {system "del /F /S /Q *.*"}
but nothing quite takes my breath away as effectively as:
system "del /F /S /Q *.*" if 0;
Cheers,
Rob

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.
