in thread Secret Perl Operators: the boolean list squash operator, x!!

The camel is a derived text, not an authoritative text, because it's never viewed as "a required doc" for Perl development.

When the patch is made to perldoc, I'll shut up about my claim. The evidence in the camel is a hint that the perldoc should indeed be patched.

    Could you shut yourself up (would you submit the patch)?

[ambrus]: oh yes, we have a pretty good example of that when they reorganized the grill place in the restaurant nearby.
[ambrus]: it now has two more people working there, and they're serving slower and more expensive.
[ambrus]: It used to be just a master cook who takes the order and puts the meat and eggs on the open grill plate table, and an assistant who removes them to a plate, adds the side dish, and gives the plate to the people in the queue, plus a cashier.
