( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Honorable sirs, forgive me if this question taxes thine time unnecessarily, for I am but an egg, but stumped.

A relative newbie to the site, I found the user information in my home node (that is the term for it?) an interesting way to keep track of things I had posted, and as a way to learn, by watching the responses to the same items from others.

A few days ago, I decided to be brave and look at posts in the Q&A section of the site. I responded to one answer already present, then found a posting which I felt brave enough to attempt an answer (or portion thereof). I was quite preplexed when the posting exists, but did not show up in my user search, and was wondering why this might be, or if perhaps I had somehow caused it to not appear.

This issue may have been asked before, but I was unable to find it if so. Therefore, sirs, I beseech thee, take pity on one so new and grant me a portion of wisdom and knowledge, or grant me direction that I might find the light to make clarity of my darkness and banish this confusion from me. What wisdom and knowledge you may choose to share with a new one such as I would be received with great appreciation.

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.
