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

I personally believe this is interesting for it's very much in $Larry's spirit: in fact it would have a very strict etymological sense, for Perl "should" have been "Pearl" as we all know. However for some reason Perl's imagery has had little to do with pearls and oysters ever since: the official symbol is as we all know, an onion! Thus... how 'bout onion itself? We may even try to find some suitable backronym, but... is that all that necessary?

Update: I notice that indeed there have been some other onion-oriented suggestions.

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.
