in thread Is there an easier way to find and install modules on Linux?

Maybe he'll write a new app for Dragon Speech Recognition that will allow it to recognize Perl syntax. :)
If so, he should really use the comic profanity convention. Programming in Perl would be like a George Carlin routine.

    Oh you are talking about SymbolSwearing?

    Took me a while, other cultures have less problems with the Seven_Dirty_Words.

    But under the assumption that they shouldn't be used as identifiers in source code, they'd form excellent free replacements for punctuation (well at least the one-syllable ones).

    That would prevent name space pollution!

    In other words: say

    • "s#!t"╣ => $

      but

    • "dollar" => dollar

      such that

    • "s#!t dollar" => $dollar

    and so on.

    so @{ $job->( "name" ) }

    would be something like

    BUT I'm not confident about the encoding, cause I'm no native swearer! :-(

    Could you please help me?

    ▓) update: corrected syntax error s/ f*ck / c*ck /

      Not a bad first-effort, but everyone knows that "tits" shouldn't be on the list because they're a snack. :)

      It helps to remember that the primary goal is to drain the swamp even when you are hip-deep in alligators.
