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

The more I know, the more I know I DON'T know. I've toyed with the idea of getting some sort of sql certification (so I can be a better perl programmer, of course), but then that's a little sick and wrong.
Well, you have my sympathies... essentially there's an infinite amount of stuff we all need to learn in order to do the job right, so coming up with strategies to provisionally minimize what you need to learn is essential.

Myself, I would say that knowing your way around relational databases is a fairly fundamental, useful skill, and whether or not you bother with a "certification", it's not a bad direction to go in.

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.
