Just a silly answer :). When men didn't have digits, they used fingers or sticks to count... ;-)

```my @numbers = (
['|'],
['|', '|'],
['|', '|', '|'],
['|', '|', '|', '|'],
['|', '|', '|', '|', '|'],
['|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|'],
['|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|'],
['|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|'],
['|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|'],
['|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|', '|'],
);

foreach( @numbers ) {
print scalar @\$_;
print "\n";
}

I just couldn't resist it... When I saw they used fingers to count, I immediately thought of counting candles...
```my @numbers                 =
(
['|'] ,
['|','|'] ,
['|','|','|'] ,
['|','|','|','|'] ,
['|','|','|','|','|'] ,
['|','|','|','|','|','|'] ,
['|','|','|','|','|','|','|'] ,
['|','|','|','|','|','|','|','|'] ,
['|','|','|','|','|','|','|','|','|'] ,
['|','|','|','|','|','|','|','|','|','|'] ,
) ;
foreach
( @numbers )
{ print scalar @\$_; print "\n"; }

 [stevieb]: it is exceptionally difficult I'm finding to debug a dist that is x-platform, where on each platform you're wrapping a different binary. Trying to co-ordinate a successful test run where tests are extensive is a nightmare, especially when the dist... [stevieb]: ...you're testing is a test system itself. 10+ documented issues fixed, another half dozen found while fixing the original ones. I'm getting there... [stevieb]: Then throw in changes to Windows that throws everything you trusted right out the window. [shmem]: that's why it is called "Windows" [stevieb]: shmem thanks for the 'insight' :P [shmem]: good thing that Sun already took "OpenWindows", otherwise I'd not stop to shudder imagining an "OpenWindows" from MS [shmem]: more garbage in, more garbage out that would be [stevieb]: I found that win10 broke a C# library I was using for one project while enhancing tests for a Perl dist, which breaks other Perl dists, and I'm about to throw my hands up on berrybrew. win2k12 broke one thing, win10 breaks something...
