in thread The state of my vision

I know, I know. I never said it was a practical idea. :-) The practical benefits to my life would probably be greatest if I were to get LASIK now. On the other hand, I'm one of those people who, in junior high, would sit around rolling dice for several days to "honestly" get the perfect D&D character. I'm a sucker for quixotic undertakings.

Anyway, I've been wearing glasses for 20 years or so, and they don't actually bother me, so it's not hard to hold out. I save money, and get the pleasure of thinking I may be able to amaze people with my wonder-vision one day.

I'd love to have a few of Chuck Yeager's eyesight genes spliced into my children too, but that I'm not waiting for. They'll just have to be responsible for having my grandkids properly engineered. :-)

[choroba]: Config might be better than grepping -V
[Corion]: Also see Config::V, which is less of that hackery, or that hackery hidden in a module ;)
[1nickt]: The problem was with Perlbrew
[Corion]: Whoops - Config::Perl::V
[1nickt]: I found that when using Perlbrew as recommended, with cpanminus in the system perl lib, such tests were failing to detect the data about the perl that was the install destination.
