in reply to Should every poll have a "CowboyNeal" option?

Let's get the next 4 pointless polls outta the way in one foul swoop.

  1. Should any poll jabe a CowboyNeal option?
  2. Should some polls have a CowboyNeal option?
  3. Should one polls have a CowboyNeal option?
  4. Should none polls have a CowboyNeal option?

Answer: Not until Perl6 style junctions are available, which means someone added them to Perl5.x, and this site has been upgraded to use that.

Which reminds me of an old song. (The 'Livy Nu'on John version, not the Ony Dosmond; and certainly not the Keith Urban version!)

Hell's teeth. Did Elvis do a version? Jeez! That really dates it (and me!). He's been (un)dead like 50 odd years ain't he?


Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

[Eily]: and if there's XS, make sure the scalar holds a string representation, that sounds like bad practice though (forcing that on the call side)
[choroba]: You should never pass $1 without double quotes to a sub
[choroba]: or "I should never", at least
[choroba]: that's not the sub's business
[Eily]: choroba but does $name = $1 solve the issue ?
[Eily]: if so, most subs start with my (VARIABLES) = @_ anyway
[moritz]: for short subs, I sometimes let them work on $_[0] directly
[Eily]: moritz but that should be fine unless you modify them
