in thread What can bring the excitement back to Perl?

Javascript was my first language actually (I am not counting BASIC on the Apple ][e back in '85) so I completely agree with you.

My comment about Javascript was not actually meant to be a slight against it. Only a clarification that most people who had only been exposed to PHP, were also likely to be exposed to Javascript too. But as you said, JS has some ugly dark corners to it which gives it an undeservedly bad rep.

[marioroy]: CORE::wait works well eventhough multiple instances or classes using Hobo::Manager.
[Corion]: marioroy: I'm not sure what the normal use for the PID is in P:FM, but I guess that most programs just ignore or log it
[Corion]: Oh, yes, programs could call wait $pid, but if your $pid is an object, then you could add a ->wait method to it and wait $pid would call that automatically "thanks" to indirect object notation
[marioroy]: Just documentation edits is all that remains. Hobo::Simple provides foreach and forseq with identifier capability -- all transparently supporting array, hash, file handle, and seq 1 .. N.
[marioroy]: Corion Regarding PID, that's great. So will leave it so compatible with MCE::Hobo. e.g. ->create returns a Hobo object. Folks can get ->pid from it. So, that's not a problem.
[choroba]: ad readdir: 5.12 needed
[marioroy]: CORE::wait can block if another process reaps a worker from another class. MCE::Hobo takes care of that and transparently.
[Discipulus]: thanks choroba i'll update my answer
[Lady_Aleena]: Hello Discipulus, Corion, choroba, and marioroy...
