# "not perl", shows a "lack of effort", or could be answered with a simple google search.

"Not Perl" is in my opinion a very good reason for consideration if the post is about programming, but not about Perl. I assume PerlMonks is not the place for Javascript, Python, Ruby, C, Java, etcetera. Of course language comparisons are welcome, and people should be able to express something in another language if that's a logical way to present it. And of course off topic Meditations should be possible. But let's keep SoPW, Q&A and the many code dump places Perl-only.

"Lack of effort" is the good reason for consideration of nodes of people who try to get free custom scripts. I consider nodes that are "I need a script that..."-like.

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.
