Oooh, getting lots of replies on this one: I think the problem is when you focus too much on the form of the code and not what you are actually trying to achieve. I have written some (rarely, I admit) lovely code but when I try it I am horrified when it doesn't work.

Later, usually after a nicoteine and Dr.Pepper fix, when I look at it again I suddenly notice the truth:

There is no problem with the code. Instead, try to realise that the problem is not in the code but... Thinks: I've still not got the Matrix out of my system... comes from your assumptions that you have built into the code.

I do like the

if ($foo = $bar && $foo != $bar) { #code }
though, it's a nice cockup.

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.
