in thread m//g behaves strange...

You beat me out - I had an almost identical reply ready when I saw yours. Let me just add that ~ tries to use an integer value even if only a floating-point value is set, and even if it is out of integer range (which can result in some strange results.)

Also, for any of the bitwise/stringwise ops (~, &, ^, |), quote the variable to force stringwise semanics if you are unsure where it has been:

$ perl -wle'$x="abc"; print ~$x; print $x+0; print ~$x; print ~"$x"' z?o Argument "abc" isn't numeric in addition (+) at -e line 1. 0 18446744073709551615 z?o

[marto]: it literally doesn't work. Also, via their citrix interface theres no way to open attachments, or upload an attachment for sending. The company policy is that you email you work account from a personal one, and forward it on from there :/
[Corion]: marto: Ouch :/ And having that as a (written) policy strikes me as inane...
[Corion]: So maybe you can use that momentum in the household instead, or use it for taxes or other chores ;)
