in reply to = rather than =~ ?

Good catch!

That should have been =~! Where were you when that was being tech reviewed? Or where was my brain when I was typing that?

Thanks... I'll add it as an errata.

    This note might confuse newbies, so I thought just add a comment.

    "That should have been =~!"

    What merly said is that, that was a typo, and not what he wanted. (As you can see, he is the owner of that web page.)

    But as a Perl statement, it is absolutely valid, and jweed has already given a full explanation.

    Goodness. And all this time I thought you had /meant/ it that way.

[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...
[stevieb]: ...unrelated which requires replacing a lot of code and a whole lib. I'm about to go nix only ffs
[shmem]: stevieb: what you're doing sounds afwully complex. Too much for me this evening to provide brighter insight ;-)
[stevieb]: I don't even own a Windows computer. Both my girl and I have a laptop each with Linux. I'm supporting Windows in some of my projects and I can't even guage whether it's worth it or not.
[stevieb]: shmem It's something I desired to have years ago, which is why I took over berrybrew. Cross-platform build/test automation locally, or over the network Test::BrewBuild
[shmem]: sounds good.
[shmem]: but I'm crumbling smaller stones. remember...
