To do this right, I need real examples of real code that other people wrote. I have about half the examples that I need. I hope that the Perl community can provide the other half.
If I use your code in the book, you will receive:
By sending me your code, you are giving me permission to use it in the book and in related talks and classes in any way I see fit. If you don't want me to use it, don't send it.
For example, here is something I could use:
This is a CGI program that plays tic-tac-toe.I could also use this:
This program scans ./wuexport looking for files, which it then copies to ./wuexport/00123, where the 00123 is one greater than the largest number already in ./wuexport.That's quite clear. Nobody knows why it needs to do that, but that's OK. Here is something I can't use:
This program calculates the number of unit-annuities under both the amortized and the annual income change methods, depending on the formulary in use at the time the annuity was vested.
Send code to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're sending code because I'm going to give a talk in your city or for your Perl Mongers group, tell me where you live so that I don't accidentally use your code in the wrong place!
Don't forget to tell me if you want me to keep your submission anonymous or not. You have three choices: I keep you completely anonymous; I credit you in the preface of the book without saying which contribution is yours; or I give you full credit.
