in thread conditional self-execution

exactly the same thing in perl

When you misquote me ("something else" instead of what I actually said: "something to that effect"), that sure does seem like it's the case.

print substr("Just another Perl hacker", 0, -2);

    __FILE__ is exactly the same thing in perl: a variable, a constant, or something else.

    Except that it cannot be interpolated (not unreasonably).
      "This string varies depending on @{[__FILE__]}."

      --
      [ e d @ h a l l e y . c c ]

      Thus, it is not "something to that effect", but it is "something else".

      print substr("Just another Perl hacker", 0, -2);
      - apotheon
      CopyWrite Chad Perrin
