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

I start any file based programs with strict and warnings. But I rarely -Mstrict with -e. Often that means that when a -e program begins to grow to the point that my shell's (bash or cmd.exe depending on platform) readline is more cumbersome than moving the code into a file and bouncing to a shell to execute (or keybinding to execute for editors that handle it well) I move it to a file, usualy adding strict and warnings before I even copy the code from the command line, and then forgetting before the first time I run the file that I still need a few my's sprinkled around.

I'm fairly good at judging before hand what will be a one off with maybe an edit or two and a program that will require editing and debugging, but ever couple of months I'm not so lucky.

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.
