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

That is rather similar to the problem I have with a sealed black box. I want to know what is in it, but I'm not allowed to open it. I do know the address information on the outside of the box and how large it is - stuff like that, but I've no idea what is inside it. Perhaps if you solve your problem (using a clairvoyant perhaps?) you could tell me how you did it and I can use the same technique for my problem?

Actually, solve that problem and we can sell the solution to kids who want to find out what is in their birthday presents!

In the mean time you may be interested in reading Perl's grep documentation. It is not a *nix grep (which does "open the files" btw).

DWIM is Perl's answer to Gödel

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.
