Superfluous status flags are those which can readily be inferred from the rest of an object's state. They denormalize the data structure (in relational database terms) and the additional code required to update them in sync with the actual data violates the Once And Only Once principle.

Makeshifts last the longest.

[Tux]: but I <3 the way people test here
[Tanktalus]: Tux: use sort -V to sort your perls. Looks much nicer that way ;)
[Tux]: Hmmm, pm-cb-g does not seem to accept dead-key diacriticals as all my other (perl) applications do. choroba?
[Tux]: Tanktalus this was the output of autocompletion in my tcsh
[erix]: ah, but I have different compilation- versions of Pg too, so double that: 26 * 2 = more than 50 :P
[Tanktalus]: When I showed one of my coworkers my perl list, he told me that my sort routine was broken when 5.8.8 showed up after 5.26.0 ... which made me investigate sort, which is when I found this option :)
erix atm running billion row table replication (pg-)tests...
[Tanktalus]: Tux: ah, still... :)
Tux writes mail to tcsh developers ...
Tanktalus snickers :)
