The best simile for doing X "without using modules" is:
  • like searching for your keys "without using eyes"
  • like doing your shopping "without using money"
  • like driving into town "without using the gas pedal"
  • like unlocking a cell door "without using the key"
  • like consuming a meal "without using your mouth"
  • like shooting yourself in the foot "without using a gun"

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

[shmem]: Discipulus: the <<>> operator is quite new, it is in perl5.24 for instance
[Discipulus]: ah! thanks shmem it works in strawberry 5.24
[shmem]: ah. Introduced in 5.22.0, see perl5220delta
[Discipulus]: if so the previous error is a bit misleading, anyway
[shmem]: well, previous to that << was always treated as the left-shift operator
[Eily]: or the here-doc operator
[Eily]: which is actually how it is parsed in this case
[shmem]: older versions of perl can't guess that "use of <<>> may be implemented someday" :D
Discipulus how much wise my brothers are? ;=)
