in reply to Do you have a Perl Geek Code?

I've never seen the need to bother with geek codes, and I tend to ignore those that I see on others' sigs and home pages.

Maybe if there was an online translator somewhere... I imagine a web form where you paste a geek code block in, click submit and it translates it to plain English. This would necessitate a standard syntax and standard meanings, of course.

    The closest thing to a standard, AFAIK.

[SwaJime]: Ran into an interesting piece of code today ...
[SwaJime]: select name,status, status2 from __ where status & status < 13 and status2 & 16 <> 16
[SwaJime]: I'm thinking that looks messed up. Sorry for OT ... but I know y'all are smart :-)
[SwaJime]: I expected items to not be selected if status was 0 ... but they were selected
[SwaJime]: any thoughts?
