in reply to All you need to know about SundialSvc4
in thread Do not understand code

... and this thread, by contrast, has relevant, working code at almost every node (not!)

Enough awready!

sundialsvc4 may not be your favorite monk, but despite some of the well-justified recent critiques, he did sometimes post useful (i.e., relevant) and correct code or info in the past. And if he's verbose to a fault and recently is guilty of expressing himself in an egotistical or arrogant manner, he's also become the target of much trollery, ad hominem attacks and other comments that reflect badly on PM.

So, even if you're convinced that he's a troll, ignore; as the wisdom of the Monastery has it,

"Don't feed the trolls.'

    Let's talk about facts:

    This search returns his posts with <code> tags* so far

     ?node_id=3989;BIT=%3Ccode%3E;a=sundialsvc4;yr=2017;mo=09;dy=29 (click search )

    Please note that

    • the first 50 go back to July 2014, he wrote 1000 posts since then
    • that many of them contain no Perl, but pseudo code or no code
    • if it's supposed to be Perl it's often untested guess work
    • that most technical contributions provoked negative replies correcting him

    I even quickly stumbled over one post which was left uncorrected, where he confused qw with qr -> Re: Adding missing values into a hash

    See also what others had to say: Re^2: Two sort in single Array set

    > "Don't feed the trolls.'

    I'm not feeding him, as a matter of fact I'm even technically filtering him from my RAT view.

    In other words I can't even downvote him, because he's mostly invisible.
