in reply to File::Copy or system

If you are fond of the cp command and still want to avail yourself of the nice extras provided by File::Copy, just do use File::Copy qw/cp/; at the start of your program and the cp function is imported into your namespace.

With Perl, you can can have your cake and eat it!

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

[marto]: Corion, not bringing the kids would make it ideal :P
[marto]: a suggestion, have one project in the list that isn't programming/perl related
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, things are more parent-friendly the way they are ;))
[marto]: some hardware/makey thing
[Corion]: marto: Ah, I'm currently drifting to that again, over"painting" (well with Inkscape) one of my photographs and thinking about vectorizing some other images ...
[marto]: Corion, yes something 'artistic', so that or some music. Even combine some things, build a musical instrument :)
[Corion]: marto: Naah, I'm avoiding that rabbit hole ;) Sometimes I think of using Perl to create MIDI to generate music, or at least the harmonies to which I could jam, but then that would eat even more into available time ;-))
