I started out as a chemist, finishing grad school in '93 and working in industry until end of '95. Moved to system engineering in '96, and started using Perl in '97. I mostly use it to get the job done. :)

I do play tuba, although haven't been in a band for a while. I also play clarinet, and I'm learning bass guitar.

If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.

[ambrus]: marto: no, not that way. if you just want to test for an existing id attribute, then write *[@id] , or you can match a regexp to the value of that attribute like *[@id=~/something/ ]
[marto]: ambrus, thanks I ended up going with '//*[starts- with(@id, "thread_")]...
[ambrus]: Sometimes it's easier to just match elements in ways other than xpath, like directly with perl code.
