My primary journal is at http://use.perl.org/~n1vux/journal with a homepage at http://boston.pm.org. My Bio there says

Only started with Perl4 and Perl5 in 1995. I was doing AWK etc for 12 years before that, and resisted switching. I've been doing OO since before C++ hit bigtime, with Objective-C and SmallTalk, so I really like the (no longer new) Perl5 OO style; and the Lispish Map style is also an old friend. What do I hack with Perl? All data that passes my way; systems monitoring s‎crip‎ts at $DayJob, weather data at night, and I cheat on NPR word puzzles.
I've been reading at the Monastery, commenting as Anonymous Monk (since 2001‑06‑19), even registered once but went zombie. My Anonymous Monk comments were all signed.

[GotToBTru]: oh I know what it is .. but it is a number only slightly useful to me and of no possible use to our customer
[MidLifeXis]: Whew - you just saved the free world. <o)
[GotToBTru]: i guess it's a placeholder, the code will only fill it in if there is nothing else to use
[GotToBTru]: but then .. if you have nothing to say, why not say nothing?
[MidLifeXis]: I have a user who has a lot of say on how some of our processes work that abhors significant blanks. Perhaps that is a part of it. A not-so-obvious "this space intentionally left blank" indicator.
[MidLifeXis]: On the back end, however, that doesn't mean that i have to use that value to indicate "undefined", no matter how much he thinks I should.
