in reply to Restoring the magic to the _ filehandle in Perl 5.8.9

I'm using sub _() as a means to localise text
Beside the problem you have with _ having special meaning, the other problem you have is that _ always lives in main. If you would happen to use a module that also defines a sub _, you have a problem.

As for your question of restoring magic to _, I'm afraid I don't know the question. I've used sub _ myself before, and ran into the problem, and the problem I mentioned above. I now no longer use sub _. sub __ doesn't have the mentioned problems.

    All true. I initially used sub _ because I'd seen it used in Jifty and because it is the standard getttext way of marking text for i18n, and it worked, but yes - playing with magic does have issues.

[Corion]: erix: Sure, but SQLite doesn't even need that :)
[hippo]: Corion: Yes, you can. It's all in the pg_hba.conf
[erix]: yeah, but there is a lot SQLite cannot do :)
[hippo]: Database is the 2nd column.

[shmem]: at least, some Ook.
[erix]: another simple Pg thing is to running a database off a tsv (alas, readonly)
