You might also look at the implementation of xargs in the Perl Power Tools project.

    merlyn, are you running a popularity test with your links? :)
      Nope. I wanna see if what I'm saying is useful to people. And one way to do that more-or-less transparently is to know how many people clicked on a link, which my /cgi/go framework will tell me.

      Of course, it's been a long time since that URL actually fired off a separate process on my server: it's now a nice mod_perl handler very early in the Trans phase, but the URL is mnemonic enough that I stayed with it. {grin}

      For more details on what /cgi/go is and how to code it, see my WT column where I introduced it to my site.

        When I saw the title for this node, my first thought was:

        You should use /cgi/g instead, the /o is pointless when the regex is constant.


        I love it, but are you sure that this isn't the link to it? :)

        Hmm, had to hard code the link - the [ ] regex doesn't like it

    Well what do you know -- there's a Perl version.

    And I thought xargs was only a Unix thing...

[1nickt]: Corion HPs? ugh. I was impressed with Lenovo's gaming laptops; if it weren't for the red backlighting and general flashiness of the aesthetic, I might have gone with that. But all that was until I discovered that the Dell Precision line is still around.
[1nickt]: stevieb I don;t doubt that there's a difference. BestBuy has "consumer" models only on display.
[ambrus]: 1nickt: for some reason, these days they call every computer "gaming", even ones that gamers wouldn't buy. I've bought a keyboard that was labelled "gamer", despite that it has hard springs and seems to be way better for typing than for gaming;
[1nickt]: I though the gamers like that because they bash the keys so hard.
[ambrus]: and I've seen motherboards with no fast expansion ports for a video card but built-in hardware RAID advertized as "gaming".
LanX has a shaming laptop
[ambrus]: 1nickt: my impression is that the gamers like the softer springs, because fast reaction time is more important to them then feedback from keypresses to recognize typos.
[1nickt]: Ah, I see. I did read some gamer mag reviews, and yes, they lamented the fact that laptops with no discrete video card are sold as "gaming" hardware.
