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

May I ask why that site should be avoided? It is actually one of the cleaner sites out there. The sample code is at least legible without me having to <ctrl><mousewheel-up> to read it. It looks like it has a W3Schools feel to it.

Is it the fact that the tutorial is geared for web development? Web development and scripting go hand-in-hand. That is the reason I came here; I want to have a better and smaller web site through scripts. Javascript is too confusing, but Perl looks like it at least has some hard and fast rules to use it.

A select box, a hash of arrays, and a loop might save me the headache of maintaining 9 seperate web pages. (Though I am not sure about how Google will list it; will I get the listings for each option <hoping>, or just the one, or none because it would be a Perl script.)

Oh, and sorry for not linking it. I am still getting used to posting here. This forum is unlike the ones I am used to where I have to actually use html code to make by posts look good, though, I can handle it.

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.
