REFLECTIONS on $_

SOLIPISM KNOWLEDGE OF $SELF FOR ALL YOUR DEEPEST QUERIES.

How many meditations does it take to reach ``Knowledge of Self''?

The following links to the randomly choosing elements from an array node. It is meant to show the reflective nature of $_ and is not an excercise in using or creating a link. Display purposes only. :]

https://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja +&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwj0yqChgPbUAhVBeD4KHXnPDJsQFggwMAE&url=http%3A%2F%2 +Fwww.perlmonks.org%2F%3Fnode%3Drandomly%2520choosing%2520elements%252 +0from%2520an%2520array&usg=AFQjCNEYUua_3UVPyzYBRG4ruf_ZfYRTXw

If you squint a bit you can see the GET string looks a lot like Perl code?

a) It's a string with lot's of punctuation.

b) It's lexical in nature, meaning it's value is only apparent inside the context of the page "url", coincidence? :]

Note:

I thought one of the purposes of the meditations page was to have meditations.

I mean that I could try to explain what I was thinking when i though let's paste this link from google as a meditation, but isn't it better to just meditate on it?

Having fun if you are,
Jambo

    I thought one of the purposes of the meditations page was to have meditations.

    The purpose of Meditations is explained at the top of the page, as well as in Where should I post X?. As discussed in How do I change/delete my post?, please mark updates to your nodes (Update: of which there have now been several) as such. And please don't shout, this is a monastery :-)

      Is this the voight-kompf test? BEEP BEEP BLADERUNNER I guess'ed it was to be a randomly chosen response.

    I like ads. "Because everyone needs a hiding place". "Scaffolding for the cloud". "1984". That was just a fake ad. Here is my newest meditation; I'm stashing it here beneath this thread. Don't let me forget :]
    use warnings; use strict; use v5.20; #ohyeah say scalar reverse("# a humble tribvte to the monastery and boustropho +dons everywhere"); say reverse map {chomp, say, $$} (my $self = reverse "human\n") ;
      hello again, is a bit difficult for me to follow your posts: irony? or implicit sense? something is mising for a non native english speaker.

      But you said boustrophodon?

      L*

      There are no rules, there are no thumbs..
      Reinvent the wheel, then learn The Wheel; may be one day you reinvent one of THE WHEELS.
        Oh the irony. What is implicit sense?
        It seems I've lost my ability to post on the site? implicit sense? or explicit behaviour?
        I guess you could file it under Existential Code Poem.
        But I would rather, put it under 'Wait and see'.
        Everyone needs logic. Which is to say I'm not here to bust chops, but what have i done but express my opinion.
        I like the ternary logic in the boustrophodon example, but that's an entirely different subject. That's what you said, what i am saying will never be the same. I sense something rotten cos I can't post. Are you a moderator? Do you know why I can't post?
        And what I wanted to post was cool. Does everyone have a 100% hit rate? Is that the problem?
        Now it might be something wrong with the perlmonks server, the reason I can't post. I don't know.
        Having fun if you are,
        Jambo

[Corion]: I'm looking into Firefox Accounts (to self-host bookmark synchronization, among other things) and the one thing I like about their documentation is that they include test vectors for ...
[Corion]: ... their hashes. Even though their backends claim to be open, they don't really seem to be geared towards self-hosting them, so I'm pondering writing a (simplicistic) Perl backend for my needs
