in reply to What Programmers Want

I want Salena Sol's head nailed into a tree with something dull and rusty. Though this might have something to do with the fact that I just spent all afternoon debugging a CGI of his that management won't give us the time to replace.

I wanted to explore how Perl's closures can be manipulated, and ended up creating an object system by accident.

    Come on now ... are you sure you couldn't have reimplemented it in that afternoon? ;-)

      Yes, actually. It's a 2556 line CGI (511 lines after going through B::Deparse--there are a bloody lot of comments (not POD, either)). We actually had a project going to replace it, but that was put on hold indefinately after a few weeks of work and would probably have taken another few weeks of coding.
