When you delete my post, would you at least have the courtesy to inform me and tell me why ?

I believe my re-post was formatted correctly.

Nobody deleted your post unless it was full of profanity.  And even then they usually just get edited.  You're doing something wrong.

Or maybe it got moved to the correct part of the forum

No profanity.

This was my first post and I was admonished for not formatting it correctly (mainly due to code tags).   And then that post was deleted.   Fair enough.   But I made a new post, formatted properly, and it also disappeared within seconds).  

Apparently it was moved to another sub-forum.   Thanks.

Can't say enough for reading the "How to" before you get started.  Not only here, but so many other places in life.

It was (and is) not clear to me that the post belonged in the other sub-forum.    The 'howto' did not address the issue of posts being moved.   Other forums tend to notify the OP'er that this has been done.

FYI, there are other forums where I am one of the knowledgable people (perhaps even the expert in one or two).  So I know it can be annoying when people show up not respecting the culture of that forum.     For my clumsiness here in my first post, I apologize.   But usually people still try to be helpful, while pointing out the person's erring ways; apparently that's not the case here.

Does Perl run on an Arduino?
No.
Is the problem therefore a question of interfacing with software running on a computer?
More than likely.

Here, it's optional. Moving topics happens so often, we'd have the entire forum cluttered with redirection topics.

I usually guess that students are bright enough to navigate forums, and find their own posts, so don't post redirections.
Sometimes I'm correct.

I'd like to offer an apology to RustyShackleford for describing him as a student - I hadn't realised he was a member of the faculty.

I'm sorry.

I don't suppose you have anything helpful to add, concerning the problem I have been attempting to get help with all afternoon ?

That would be on your other thread.  Would be pointless to try to talk about it here.

Rusty. How did you find your post after it was moved? I feel your pain on the formatting. I'm still trying to learn my way around the site.

He's talking about something like a "ghostnet"... You know posts exist and vanishes quickly. The moderator can't see it.   Not sure if he downloaded malware, ghostware, etc.
