in reply to The Personalities of Perl Monks - Part I

I think I'm ...

Type 75689762. The type that does not like being pigeonholed into other types.

btw, I too think a Keirsey poll for the PollBox would be interesting. We're usually overrun with options anyway!

Actually, for the record, A+. It's my blood type too... If you must have the acronyms: ENTJ describes me to a hilt.

    Reminds me of that famous quote (but don't know who said it):
    There are two types of people: those who think people can be categorized into two types, and those who don't.
      There are 10 types of people. Those who understand binary, and those who don't.
        No No No! There are only 3 kinds of people. Those who can count and those who can't.

        Cheers - L~R

    Yeah flyingmoose, i'm there with you. We are the Godel sentence for your categories Edward, the set paradox for your pigeonholes. Invent a category and we adapt. :)
    Some astute and funny observations Edward, I enjoyed reading that.

[shmem]: no. You're right.
[msh210]: About time... last time I was right was... I don't even remember when.
[shmem]: perl -e 'warn "test$/", ^@^ '
[Eily]: well, at least it's right about warn doing the same thing as die :)
[shmem]: same with undef as last element
[msh210]: oh, good point. It's the best kind of correct
[shmem]: msh210: but I'd not call it a lie outright. That's when you do know the truth.
[msh210]: I don't have sendmail (I'm on MS Windows), so does one of you think you can report the bug?
[shmem]: msh210: 'tis about time to tell the sad truth to perl5porters - via perlbug
[msh210]: probably whoever wrote that actually knows the truth
