Sonnet 154
The little love-god lying once asleep
Laid by his side his heart-inflaming brand,
Whilst many nymphs that vowed chaste life to keep
Came tripping by; but in her maiden hand
The fairest votary took up that fire,
Which many legions of true hearts had warmed;
And so the general of hot desire
Was, sleeping, by a virgin hand disarmed.
This brand she quenchèd in a cool well by,
Which from love's fire took heat perpetual,
Growing a bath and healthful remedy
For men diseased; but I, my mistress' thrall,
   Came there for cure, and this by that I prove:
   Love's fire heats water; water cools not love.


Cheers,
R.

[Lady_Aleena]: erix, right, it searches files for a pattern. pcregrep is supposed to do the same thing with the addition of being able to search multiline.
[erix]: ah, pcregrep is a stanalone program?
[Lady_Aleena]: erix, yes.
[Lady_Aleena]: pcre stands for 'Perl Compatible Regular Expressions'.
[erix]: ok, ok, I thought you meant the engine
[perldigious]: Tanktalus: Ha, understandable, that does make it harder when you don't want to move. I assume you are looking at remote work from home jobs too?
[Tanktalus]: yeah, I'm looking at a lot of remote work - I've been working from home since 2002, so I know how to do the work from remote, I just need a new employer ;)
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, I wouldn't know how to get a script to do what the greps do in one line.
[perldigious]: Even working for a large software engineering contractor that's willing to do remote could be an option. The fortune 500 company at $job-- I worked for had quite a lot of that work to hire out to large contractors.
[perldigious]: The pay and benifits leave a lot to be desired though, or so I've heard...
