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

Isn't the idea of searching first to avoid starting new questions when reasonably possible?

No, the idea is to find answers to your own questions :)

If the old thread doesn't answer your question, you create a new one, and say:

I got this question ... saw this old related thread ( [id://104789] ), but it doesn't answer my question exactly


In my mind, this wasn't a new question, it was a continuation of a discussion I'd found.

This is common , but consider the dates.

Hofmator, whom you asked a question, hasn't visited perlmonks in 5 years.

The discussion you continued is 10+ years old.

Sure any one of the perlmonks could notice your node and reply, but only Hofmator is guaranteed to notice, if he returns and has /msg me when a reply arrives turned on:) and as you've noticed, it isn't the same as asking all the perlmonks for help, all you got was me :)

necromancy tends to fly under the radar , I try to hunt for these things :)

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.
