in reply to perlmonks too slow

The other monks forgot one, so i'll tell you, change your CSS setting. Copy the stylesheet to your computer, and change the appropriate setting in user settings to point to it. That way the CSS isn't ever sent to you, and perlmonks loads faster. I think everybody should do this (in fact I think we shouldn't inline CSS by default anymore, but i guess we do it for backwards compatibility ~ damn).

update: by the way, I --ed you cause your comment is ignorant at best (you made no mention of your connection speed or any kind of relevant concrete details~ how many bytes is an average page you download?).

[hippo]: For explanation, I've seen this construct in someone else's code (no names, no pack drill) and couldn't think of a situation to trigger it.
[Corion]: You'll have to look somewhere esoteric for that. Maybe some tied variable or special dualvar can also trigger that. But it's certainly not a common occurrence
[Corion]: And on 5.20, the following also outputs no find:perl -wle 'for my $x ("\x{2000}".."\ x{1fffff}") { if( $x && ! length $x ) { warn qq(<$x>); warn length $x; die } }'
[Corion]: (this time on Unix)
[hippo]: Understood. I'll have to go through the code and see if it's doing anything fancy with ties, dual-vars or non-scalars. In the end, it's probably a bug though.
[Corion]: Aaah - you should be able to do this with overload, but I would hit somebody really hard if they constructed objects that are true but the empty string, and you not knowing about the domain knowledge where this makes sense
