I sympathize. Many times I see a question I know I could answer (and thus advance on the road of Monkly Enlightenment), but The Usual Suspects have beaten me too it by a minute or so.

I personally believe it should not be taken as a competition, by any means, and thus I do not sympathize. If you know you can answer, just do it: that yours does not come as the first answer right below the OP does not matter. It may still be better phrased than a similar answer by the Usual Suspects, or give more details, or expand on the subject. Of course, if an answer has already been given and you saw it, then don't repeat the obvious part of it -I see this clearly happening every now and again, and it just hits on my nerves- but just point out the additional details, etc. (if you have them) perhaps specifying "in addition to what the Usual Suspect said..." as a sort of acknowledgement.

If you can't understand the incipit, then please check the IPB Campaign.

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.
