    What I meant is something like this my ($ansb_cktid, $ansb_mcn, $ansb_soc) =unpack("A3 A3 A6")

      I'm of the mind set that you shouldn't pull back more data than you need then post process it, when you can easily return only what you need.

[Discipulus]: thanks marto but... at the moment this seems a bit beyond my faculties.. ;=)
[zentara]: a thread goes into a wait state after emitting a wait to all other threads. It locks up a machine completely.
[marto]: if you mean the recent hyperthreading bug, I don't think that's NSA related?
[zentara]: s/thread/cpu/
[marto]: xkcd://538
[Discipulus]: these opcodes mentioned in the wiki pages are the same opcode perl is translated into? or is just the same term but in different fields?
[zentara]: it's useful if you want to lockup a multicore machine :-)
[zentara]: marto I would give up the key easy with drugs....
[Corion]: Discipulus: No, the Perl opcodes are more high-level than the raw processor opcodes
[zentara]: sodium pentathol and a beautiful woman interogator :-)
