Perl & XML
"Programmers, hear my cry! Spend your precious hours working on your program interface, your error- checking, your overall design and modularity, don't spend time worrying about a scheme with a fancy name that saves data like this: value."
Argh! Slashdot cut out my pseudo-tags, in my original post I meant <variable>value</variable>.
I bet I won't be the only one to make that mistake today. If you're posting XML, be sure to save the post as "Extrans (html tags to text)" instead of "Plain old text" or "HTML formatted" to save your braces from being truncated.
This has been a public service announcement.
Now I'm depressed, I'm going to go work on my latest server. At least I have some control there.
