One thing I like about this site, having lurked for a while before joining, is that the Meditations allows for this sort of discussion which is related to being a programmer, regardless of language. I've read good advice and good debate there, and this was what finally pushed me over the edge to register. Unfortunately, now y'all are afflicted with my tub-thumping platitudes ...

However, let us not forget that the main purpose of this site is for Perl monks to gather and discuss Perl. Yes, there is a need for a Meditations-like area, but it should not loom too large in the site's presence. I think that adding another, similar area would be starting on that slippery slope.

As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

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.
