( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Due to my users are complete morons...

Be careful with those stones: One might call someone who uses a sentence as poorly constructed as that a "moron", too.

Your users are not morons. They're human. What's more, they're humans who don't really need to worry about whether there's a space between before the AM/PM. Why should they waste their human brain cycles dealing with something that the machine can handle just as well?

Remember why we're programmers: "Machines should work. People should think." The whole point of the machine is to take the drudgery off the human. Taking a snippy attitude at your users benefits no one.

Fortunately, Perl makes this sort of drudgery simple to handle, as you've already seen.

Take the path to the light of helpfulness, not to the darkness of insulting your customers.

xoxo,
Andy

Title:
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.
