( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

All problems that can be solved using a module (written by someone else) can be solved without using the module. It's just that you may end up rewriting the module! Redoing hundred or thousands of hours of work may be a good way of learning, but it doesn't get the task at hand achieved in a timely fashion.

Of course if you really want to learn stuff try solving the same problems in assembly language or Ook! - you'll learn all sorts of stuff about frustration and low productivity, but those are probably not the things you want to learn.

One of the important lessons to learn here is that there are a lot of very clever people writing modules for Perl and making them freely available. Using those modules can save you a lot of time. Peeking at the internals of those modules can teach you a lot about coding techniques. Using modules you can win both ways - learning and saving time.

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.
