in reply to Unix to Perl

dear all , I am struck with performace issue on road while trying drive to Memphis: I need to turn left somewhere, until i hit a cow. Then i need to move the cow to another place. The way was given: left, right, up, up more, white cow, red cow, left. could you please drive me to Memphis in your porsche as i heard its much fastre than road.

BTW, Really sorry for misusing the words. When i said road, I actually meant to say car ( tractor, wheels, etc). please find my road below. It takes approx 15 mins for me to drive to Memphis.

    It is a blatant lie that my Porsche is faster than the road (or car or whatever). I have been driving my Porsche towards Memphis now for over an hour already and still no Memphis in sight. As a matter of fact, my Porsche just fell into the water and has stopped driving. Locals say the water is the North Sea. You did not mention I had to cross a sea and an ocean to reach Memphis.

    BTW: I am living in Belgium.

    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

      Humorous, but rather unfair.

      The confusions of the OP are, unfortunately, commonly held ones. I have had people attend a "UNIX Programming" course expecting to be taught how to write shell scripts (if they had read the description they would have seen it was for C programmers). I had a dig about the use of AWK above, yet lines like that are very common in shell scripts.

      At least give the OP credit in asking for help. This is an opportunity for education, not mockery.
        I did give him credit, even ++ his nodes and gave him a solution for his problem. I had not at all the intention to mock him, my node was not even a reply to one of his nodes.

        Your criticisms are probably meant for me, and I accept them. Yes, I feel bad about the possibility discouraging someone who is apparently trying to learn.

        OTOH, I think that ridicule does have a role to play in learning, and we don't write replies just for the OP, but also for other readers. I wish Umesh the best and hope he hasn't given up.
