( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am responding a bit late to this one, since everybody has responded in a general manner, I'll be specific and give you my opinion on why those nodes don't have a very high reputation:

Re: modular exponentiation with arbitrary precision binary numbers (did I say RSA?)
Correct me if I am wrong, but if neshura editted it (ten days after you posted, from the looks of it), I would have to guess that it was originally posted without code tags. Time goes on, nobody votes it up because it is not properly formatted - by the time it is editted, everybody has already seen it and doesn't think to look at it again.

Re: if condition only returns false . . .>
Good, correct answer. But very brief. The only monk I know that consistantly uses brief replies to their advantage is the ubiquitous I0.

Those are just my assumptions and opinions - I merely wish to help out, not razz you. As for general reasons why good nodes don't get the reputation they deserve, well, it's all about timing and association (don't expect replies to a stupid question to get a lot of ++'s - it happens, just don't expect it). .

I can tell that you have learned a valuable leason of experience whoring - advertise. It works, just go back and look at how much the reps on your two nodes have already risen. :)

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.
