in thread making a perl script TSR? (on linux)

Coming from a DOS background, I had to second Ven'Tatsu on saying that the term really made sense at that time (at least for us poor DOS user's ;)

Anyone remember Side Kick(TM), The Norton Guides(TM), etc. It was cool to have 640K 10Mhz XT computer and be able to run Turbo Pascal 3(TM) as editor and call those little gizmos to look-up a library reference or something.

And, as Ven'Tatsu said, some programs apparently keep running, but then there were some (like the ones mentioned), that just were sitting there waiting for their Hot-Key to be pressed to become alive! Ah, many good memories... ;)

And also the classic Assembler 101 assignment to make a TSR clock program. Wasn't that cool. ;)

God bless you
