I hadn't thought of this, but it's quite a useful thing to do. I have to look up my Perl 5 pocket reference every time I do seek because I have a mental block abt whether the position comes before or after the whence (somehow it makes more sense that it shd come after, actually)... the trouble is, I can't actually think up a snappy mnenomic for FPW. The best I cd do was appropriate for foulmouthed people who don't like accountants, viz **** Price Waterhouse. The asterisks are fine because I know the filehandle comes first ;-). But perhaps the process of looking for a mnenomic will break my blockage and I'll be able to remember anyhow.

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.
