    Most people here still manually enter their Perl code using toggle switches.

Thank you .. I feel seen by this. My first work term (Fall '77) we had to enter the bootstrap program by hand in octal, using a number pad on the front panel of the first prototype. That allowed us to load the second bootstrap program using paper tape .. which enabled us to load the monitor program via 8" floppy disk drive.

I worked in octal for the next three years, and upgrading to hex was a bit of an adjustment. Forget 377 and 177776, now it's FF and FFFF. :)

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.
