in thread Another question about the split function

If EXPR is omitted, splits the $_ string. If PATTERN is also omitted, splits on whitespace (after skipping any leading whitespace)
As a special case, specifying a PATTERN of space (' ' ) will split on white space just as split with no arguments does

Those little factoids escaped me. I suppose it's time to start reading 'Programming Perl' for the third (or is it fourth?) time. No matter how many times I read it I always pick up something new

90% of every Perl application is already written.

[Corion]: marto: You mean "Sane Dots Dramatic Reading of ITIL" ? ;)
[marto]: Sane Dots, chapter 13: ITIL never work :P
[marto]: sorry, bad pun of it'll :P
[Corion]: :-D
[Corion]: I think that ITIL is mostly to prevent people from doing harm to a system that basically runs unattended :)
[Corion]: Maybe you could reduce ITIL to a computer network, a man and a dog. The network runs the computations. The man is there to feed the dog. The dog is there to prevent the man from accessing the computers.
[marto]: from experience of this side of the fence, it's all about proving to people that you are ITIL compliant, then the client ignores logical processes anyway :P
