Your post hits many a chord with my newfound current thinking. The response to this post has been phenomenal (IMHO) and massively more beneficial than I ever invisaged.

It seems that by going 'back to basics' my preconceptions and assumptions don't come into play and therefore I get much better responses. Ie, I ask a better question and benefit greatly from doing so.

I have to say that generally I'm not in favour of people asking basic questions (Before anyone comments I recognise that I'm highly intolerant and a hypocrite) if I think they could have got the answer by doing a little reading or thinking themselves. That said I think you have made good comments on the 'basic and genuine' vs 'basic and lazy'. And have caused me to reform my views.

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.
