in thread O'reilly some sort of perl monopoly?

Funny, I'm a Perl commiter and when I add something to Perl, I currently assign the copywrite over to Larry Wall, not O'Reilly. Better yet, here's the copyright and licence on perlglossary.pod.

Based on the Glossary of Programming Perl, Third Edition, by Larry Wall, Tom Christiansen & Jon Orwant. Copyright (c) 2000, 1996, 1991 O'Reilly Media, Inc. This document may be distributed under the same terms as Perl itself.

Control of the glossary passed over to the Perl community, not vice versa. Patches welcome!

So either you need a tinfoil hat, or this thread is a good example of troll bait. Your arguments about O'Reilly controlling Perl are so idiotic that I won't try to continue to argue it.

I will argue about PHP, though. PHP is under the control of a corporation. Zend employs many of the core developers of PHP. It is also suspected that Zend is in talks to be acquired by Oracle. So, please enjoy your freedom. Bye bye!

[Discipulus]: no no seriously, redss posed a good question in the right moment, and you gave as always wonderful answers
[Discipulus]: Tanktalus my comment was about how to fork & join in tk?
[marioroy]: Oh, I've might of missed Discipulus's earlier response. I had gone to bed.
[Tanktalus]: ah, I don't even have the perlmonks site open in my browser :)
Tanktalus is chatting through his cbstats application :)
[marioroy]: Perl is so much fun.
[Discipulus]: Tanktalus i recently started a Meditation about marioroy's MCE suit of modules, but is even better to see a practical question answered than responses to my meditation
[Discipulus]: good night mario!
[Tanktalus]: yeah, I saw you post about MCE - the concept looks really really cool. I wonder how well it plays with Coro :)
[Lady_Aleena]: Hi guys. I asked this earlier but got no answer. Why is this dying at -exec: my @music_times = qx(find ~/Music/Albums/ -type f -iname '*.mp3' -exec mp3info -p "%S\n" {} \;);
