With the exception of "use" unless its part of the core perl package.
You are violating your own constraint:
corelist Parallel::ForkManager MIME::Lite Net::Telnet Parallel::ForkManager was not in CORE (or so I think) MIME::Lite was not in CORE (or so I think) Net::Telnet was not in CORE (or so I think)

    I should have elaborated on that, sorry for the vague explanation. The script is running on a server I don't have root access to and no additonal modules may be installed. I may use those already in place but can not install additonal ones. The constraint was expressed because there would be obvious choices for some stuff that I'm doing like e.g. BerkeleyDB or a forkmanager supporting shared data structs, which I cannot use. EDIT: fixed word mix-up
      Are you allowed to install modules in your home directory?
        Installing anything requires a painful neverending process with dozens of people and tons of paperwork (thx ITIL/ISO) that has never yielded any positive results in the past. Technically speaking I guess I could copy paste the source code into files and thereby recreate them in my homedir, but I haven't looked into that to be honest.

[stonecolddevin]: Sinistral yes indeed

[stonecolddevin]: o/ planetscape
[Sinistral]: I think that just the sight of his username now causes a downvote storm. I agree, and the gratuitous use of formatting does make reading hard. I've given him +1 on things where there seemed to be actual good advice, but I think the big
[Sinistral]: nail in coffin was the rant against a Schwarzian Transform
[stonecolddevin]: at best, from what i've seen, his knowledge is accurate up to maybe 2002. the sheer volume of words is mostly worthy of a downvote in most cases though i think
