( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Heya, thanks for taking a look. In response:
  1. Typically all of the functions anyone would want to use are like_this, and everything that's "internal" is _likeThis or _like_this. I guess it's just a matter of style.
  2. I wasn't sure about the exporting, and learned my mistake several versions out. It's fixed in he one that's in CPAN.
  3. I actually come from C. The $self vs. $this thing
  4. I use $verbose == 0 because calling DEBUG() without parameters turns it on. With a 0 parameter, it turns it off. It needs to be numerically false and existing.
  5. The unless fileno thing is a good suggestion, and i'll update it when I put through some module fixes tonight.
It needs some compatibility testing. A pure perl Archive::Zip does sound like a good idea. hmmmm....

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
