in thread perl keylogger on linux

While it's true that no one here will do someone's homework for them, I don't think this particular post deserves to be brushed off so hastily.

SMA said, "If you can show me the right way to do it ,or give any idea, i think i could write it pretty fast." This doesn't sound to me like someone asking to have their project written for them. I see nothing unreasonable about someone asking for guidance with their homework. Telling someone to RTFM is often appropriate when people are asking about easily-found technical details, but manuals rarely help when you don't have a starting point. I see nothing wrong with telling folks to go look at module X, or read merlyn's article on Y, even if it is for someone's homework.

Just my $0.02.

    I don't buy it. CPAN is not exactly a secret, especially to someone who has, according to his own admission "used Perl for years." If you're in a class part of your education isn't just writing, it's researching which means putting some level of personal effort into finding out where the answer may be without cutting to the chase and asking those that already know. It's certainly convenient for the student, though ultimately not as educational as doing the grunt work yourself.

    It's kinda amusing seeing the reputation on my original node swing wildly up and down... I deliberately posted first so that I could say in a nice way what lots of other Monks would have said much less politely. The poster is new and doesn't need to be abused... I was trying to save him some abuse and I get beat up on instead.

    Ah well... to each his own. :-D
