in reply to If I were the Pauper who found a security hole that allows privilege escalation, I'd

Considering I'm too busy with the daily drudgeries of Pauperdom life, I don't have time to actively look for security holes. Any I discover would have to be completely obvious and smack me in the face. I would assume that if I found the hole, someone else knows about it too.

    I disagree, the Pauper in the original story never actively looked for security holes either, he's found it by accident.

[ambrus]: Corion: some of these stupid syntax highlighters assume that too. just look at the table in http://perldoc. perl.org/ functions/pack. html for example.
[haukex]: ..."yet" ;-) I haven't had to deal with Dist::Zilla yet but I've heard about how it's a big setup
[ambrus]: I really don't like automagic stuff. I'm happy when computers do exactly what I tell them, even if that means they sometimes do the wrong thing.
[ambrus]: And I don't much like syntax highlighters. If you need a syntax highlighter to understand your code, then your code is written unclear.
[ambrus]: And if you need a syntax highlighter to color parenthesis green and numbers black and letters blue, then you're using the wrong font.
[ambrus]: I have to tolerate syntax highlighters when other people use them, but I don't use them myself. And sorry for the rant.
