in thread My first computer was...

My first was a ZX-80, my second was a ZX-81 with 1K memory. My Dad (who worked for ICL at the time) came home one day with a 2K chip, suddenly my horizons were expanded 100%. A few weeks later over a weekend he built me a 16K RAM Pack, giving me 18K RAM ... the limits seemed endless.

Peeking and Poking memory locations was the height of fashion back then :)

Chatterbox?
[marioroy]: LA, yeah. than there's no reason why it cannot work inside qx. But chatting is hard in PM. I cannot see the code now.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: sometimes a quick glance isn't enough.
[Lady_Aleena]: What?! Can't stat ~/Music: No such file or directory? The ~/ doesn't expand?
[Lady_Aleena]: And the env variable $HOME doesn't work either. !@#$
[shmem]: no, that's a shell feature. Use $ENV{HOME}
[marioroy]: my $ans = qx{ find \$HOME -name "*.pl" -exec ls -l {} \\; };
[marioroy]: must backslash $ inside qx
