in reply to Feature or Bug ?

Well, a "faulty implementation of my faulty algorithm" could happen to be a correct implementation of the "correct" algorithm, so in that case no. And, generally, if a program gives proper (i.e. desired) output on all input, then how can it be considered to have a bug? A program is a function mapping inputs to outputs, and if it does this "correctly", then it is correct, isn't it?

[shmem]: trying to build a RPM for some perl with a bunch of modules. Trying perlbrew, trying alien.
[stevieb]: finally got my 12v solar setup for my Pi/Arduino, with a 12v 7.2Ah battery. Testing how long the Pi will run on the fully charged battery before I hook it up to the solar regulator. I expect between 8 and 18 hours, depending on load.
[shmem]: ...writing a Makefile for that. Edit, test, lather, rinse, repeat.
