I'd like to RTFM...

[ #32443 ]

... but it seems that use.perl doesn't like to have a FM... Asked for help but my "Ask Use Perl" question was rejected... Maybe it's true that we're like "guniea pigs" (FAQ).

I've become quite addicted with projecteuler.net thanks to blazar (I'd link him if I only knew how to do it without putting a long ugly href :) Yesterday I solved one problem using bigint, only to find that I didn't need it and that my code could run in 20 seconds instead of more than 2 hours.

  • (I'd link him if I only knew how to do it without putting a long ugly href :)
    Use a HTML style link, with <a href="long URL">short text</a> . It works even when inputting in "plain text" mode. The proposed <URL:long URL> scheme is pretty dumb, as you can't change the displayed text.
    • Being used to Perl Monks, I thought that there could be some "writeup formatting tips" beyond the Allowed HTML at the end of the page. But after a long journey in slashdot [slashdot.org] I saw that there are way less "frills" in slash, and I suddenly realised that it's obvious, given that this is an "external world stories" platform.

      I only wonder if I've completely dreamed about some help pages here in use.perl!
