in reply to Passing Any Range of Values to a Sub

I'm ashamed to admit it, but yes this is homework.

Hey, at least you had the umption to admit it upfront. There are a lot of posts that stink of homework questions but start off with something like, "SO I was playing around with Perl and had an idea but I can't make it work...." which translates to, "This is due tomorrow. Help!!!"

What makes this a good post is that
  1. You admit upfront that it's homework (show some integrity!)
  2. You did some work, and it looks like some research (not just "How do I do this thing?")
Keep working at it. You'll pass me in no time (if you haven't already ;)

Don't worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you'll have to ram them down people's throats.

[SuicideJunkie]: So, possibly interesting thing; I had that script which was using more than all the ram to open an absurdly large spreadsheet. I set it up to spin overnight nightly, so it stopped releasing memory since it was never fully exited.
[SuicideJunkie]: Didn't expect that to be a problem. There's plenty of disk space for swap, and the memory space would be reused the next day. But apparently virtualbox dies with a guru meditation when there's no physical memory unused on start.
