in reply to "but" versus "and"
in thread A "but" operator.

And in Greek you have 'kai de kai', literally 'and but and', but usually translated as 'and moreover'.

'But' can also be used to erase the compliment that went before it, as in "the car is fast, but unreliable." These descriptions can be made less harsh by changing the word 'but' to 'and'.

It should work perfectly the first time! - toma

[Eily]: Easy, fetch the list of all the modules that are not on CPAN and remove the ones on Github
[Corion]: Eily: Sure, but I haven't written that yet ;)
[Eily]: wait, *keep* only the ones on Github, otherwise you'll still have an infinit list
[Eily]: Corion so until you write it, the module that lists the module that do not exist on CPAN should return itself
