in reply to (OT troll) New Section: PHP

an O'Reilly employee admitted that O'Reilly is trying to control perl by using the viral GPL

chromatic did no such thing. He said that O'Reilly had donated Perl documentation to the Perl community. Either you didn't read the post, or you don't understand how the GPL works or you are deliberately just spreading FUD.

I propose we add a new section, entitled "PHP", where we can ask the questions on how to change a piece of perl into PHP and talk about building the future this way

Can't really see that being popular round here can you? If you really want to start "phpmonks", then the Everything Engine that powers Perlmonks is open source. Feel free to use it to set up your own community.

    The code I wrote for this site is not and never will be available to the OP for use on a phpmonks.

      Does that mean that pythonmonks can ? ;-)

      Sorry, sorry jkva runs for it

      What about rubymonks? ;-p

        What I wouldn't give for a . . .

        Of course, I wouldn't give up my, and or would surely end up being ignored by me. Don't get me wrong: Python is a great language, but it's not for me — and I do use PHP quite a bit for low-end web development, even though it's a pretty rinky-dink language.

        I'd just love to see something like for Ruby. A lot.

      Not available to anyone for any purpose, then? That's too bad.

        How do you go from "not being available to the op for use on phpmonks" to "not being available to anyone for any purpose"? If somebody were to ask me for copies of some of my code most likely Id be happy to hand it over. But im not going to hand over my code to someone like the OP. Which is my right. OTOH, if I were to release it under some kind of open source license then I couldnt stop the OP so I guess the "never" in my original statement was a bit extreme. Lets put it this way, the only way the OP will get his hands on my code on the site is if we GPL the whole lot. Wheras other people could get the code just by asking nicely.
