- You actually cannot use pop instead of shift in the first line unless you rearrange the argument list order. The same goes for most of the subroutines.
- You cannot use open F,pop; because there are 3 args coming in, not 2.
- The &x() syntax is actually the golfed version in several places, particularly &$3($2,$4,$');. Now, in others, it can be removed. But, I sincerely doubt it has anything to do with the author's skills as a programmer. Personally, I'm impressed with a P2P client in under 1000 characters.
Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.
