in reply to Can you spot the problem?

I have to admit that trying to solve puzzles like this pre-coffee are not the best idea. I looked at this for a while, and saw the problem. But I wasn't sure I saw the problem, so I started running the code.

Even knowing the problem, I couldn't find a good test case to make this fail until I looked at some of the other notes -- I'd become convinced that I was wrong about the problem. But my initial guess was correct.

So no cookie for me. But I'll settle for my coffee instead.

[ozboomer]: Howdy, all.. Trying this once more... Not really a perl question :(... but I don't know how to even title my query (more...)
[ozboomer]: There's a text file with lots of sections in it, like an '.ini/.conf' file. Each section can be 'used' or 'unused' by its application (more...)
[ozboomer]: Some folk want to use the text file as 'storage', keeping ALL items in it (a database); others call it an 'active document' that should only contain 'in-use' sections. Is there a 'good practice' for this sort of thing?
