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

Others have already commented on your code. I want to comment on your final "wibble".

I think on PerlMonks, there is no such thing as a question that is too basic. People here are generally very eager to help even absolute newbies. What will displease senior monks and junior monks alike is questions that make clear that the author didn't care to do any research on their own, or does not want to learn, but just wants his or her current problem solved.

However, your post shows that you have put some thought into your question before stating it, even if it is basic, and that you are eager to learn. So don't be fearful to ask more basic questions, you are welcome!

Another aspect of "basic" questions is that a lot of them are not basic at all. They might touch on a hidden aspect of perl that many people are not aware of, and thus be much more edifying than you imagine.

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.
