( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
One small victory for me was a few days ago, a Visual Basic based customer wanted a program to fetch some files from some SCO servers and then insert the data from the files in a MS/SqlServer, so i told him "Hey, i can do that with just a few lines using perl", and he told me, "Perl?, what is that garbage, use VB".
I didn't say a think and started with the program, about 40 minutes and 30 code lines later it was ready and working just perfect, the customer saw the source code and said, "That thing you call Perl is amazing", now he is learning about Perl, he got a copy of the Llama and Camel Books, and i am almost sure that saw a Perl stick in his car.

Another small victory was in college, when i used Perl for some projects, and when people saw
the code, they opened their minds and could look far away from the Visual Something wall.
Dreams they just disapear into the shadows,
then they become true....

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.
