Hey all,

As I awoke this morning to the lovely sound of my alarm clock, it disturbed a dream in which I was doing some code development for my University in Perl. For some odd reason, I found myself wishing I could program my alarm clock - people want weird things when they're sleepy and whatnot.

As much as I hate to admit it, this isn't the first time I've dreamt about the language - but it's the only language that's really gotten into my mind at points aside from C.

Another oddity is that in my dream, I solved a piece of code I'd been fighting the day before - once I got up, I wrote out the code, and have spent part of the day interpreting sleepy scrawl into lovely CGI.

Back in my hardcore MUD developer days, once in awhile I'd dream up a new MUD spell, including a little C code for the MUD's codebase (a mesh of Merc and Diku, available at last I checked).

I'm curious if any other Monks have had sleepy meditations about code, and if so, has it actually been something productive? =)

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
