There is a history involved here, between Wassercrat and the daily posters on this site. The OP has chosen to take a very antagonistic and puerile attitude towards the members of this site. He has also been extremely deaf to constructive criticism given to him on at least five occasions going back over a year. Many of his statements have been assertions without proof and he has attacked people for asking for said proof.

A case in point is the asssertion that Perl is on the decline in popularity. I am not saying whether it is or not, though I have my opinion. However, there has been no attempt on the part of the OP to even start to back that statement up. This is a statement he has made on at least two other occassions. He has been challenged every time and resorted to ad hominem attacks in response.

If he wishes to engage in this kind of discussion, that's his prerogative. I have supported that prerogative in the past, against the better judgement of my peers. However, I will respond in kind, and that includes the aggressive manner.

Please note that he was the one who chose, over the past year, to take such obviously antagonistic stands. That is his prerogative. But, I will not protect him from the consequences of those choices, one of which is the tone of my response. Please feel free to disagree.

Update: fixed OP's name as per sporty's reply.

Then there are Damian modules.... *sigh* ... that's not about being less-lazy -- that's about being on some really good drugs -- you know, there is no spoon. - flyingmoose

I shouldn't have to say this, but any code, unless otherwise stated, is untested

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
