Surely the concept(*), which is to implement a glue between human languages and computer language (=machine code), i.e. providing solid bridges between the two realms, incoporating linguistics. That's what perl is for me, all the sigil and operator renaming and bracket, dot and whitespace whirlpool is just like the readjustment of an artist's palette after the blue period.

Adapting the latest findings of CS to Perl (or vice versa) to the above outlined is a task which earns anyone undertaking it my deepest admiration (could anybody help me out to express that in proper english? darn.)

(*) to my understanding, which might be far from accurate


_($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q·/)Oo.  G°\        /
                              /\_¯/(q    /
----------------------------  \__(m.====·.(_("always off the crowd"))."·
");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}

[Corion]: Meh. SQL window functions would even make pagination easy/trivial (but not performant), as rank() over (partition by user order by timestamp) / 10 as page would give me a page number for each item, with 10 items per page.
[Corion]: Of course, the query performance for "all items on page 10" is likely worse than rank() between 100 and 109 , but if that means I can write 15 lines of SQL instead of needing to think about how to partition things and how to encode the page size...
[Corion]: ... that would be nice. But alas, I'm currently tied to SQLite as minimum implementation, and it doesn't implement window functions :-(
[Corion]: And I'm not aware of any other serverless SQL implementation that even reaches the capability of SQLite, not to mention surpasses it
