in reply to Which is the recommended flavor of Linux to learn perl?

OpenSUSE 12.2 comes with perl-5.16.0.

But if you want to play with perl, and want to install new modules, maybe you should look into perlbrew and use a non-system perl - on whatever Linux distro you like!


Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

[hippo]: That's equal parts clever and horrendous.
[Eily]: the overload version wouldn't return true with "$x" && !length $x though, I guess
[hippo]: The more I look at this code, the more $x is a plain old scalar and the more this condition will never be true. I'm calling it a bug at this point.
[hippo]: Thanks for your input which has soothed my sanity (a little)
[Corion]: Eily: Sure - if you force both things into stringy things, then you break that magic. But that would also mean that you changed the expression, as now $x = 0.00 will be true instead of false as it were before
[Corion]: Ah no, at least in my feeble experiments that doesn't change the meaning
[Corion]: We sell sanity in small packages ;)
