I found Term::ANSIColor. I also found a similar Perlmonks Q&A question, but it did not help much. By the way, this has nothing to do with the blog :-)

    I'm just clarifying my point that I feel you may be getting ahead of yourself. What you should do, is produce a problem case containing the issue you want to solve, then supply code with what you've tried to solve it.

    After that, you'll get valuable responses either directly, or that point you to the modules or documentation you need to read.

    Stating that you want to create a new markup language with no real understanding of what the goals are isn't helpful at all. You've been here a year and have a significant amount of posts during that time... I'd think you'd understand that.

    I'm just trying to let you know what I think kindly... things can get harsh quickly here ;)

      I don't know why others are answering for me. But thanks :-). I understand.
      --perl.j
      Thanks! Honestly, my mindset is all over the place :-)

[davido]: hm, that seems to also survive $< manipulations @corion so good call.
[Corion]: tye: I also more randomly stumbled over it, as "who am i" unix implementation didn't really provide much help. But Wikipedia linked me to the List of Unix Programs (or something like it), and from there ...
[talexb]: Wasn't Brexit the name of the first Santana album?
[tye]: That's funny, saying getlogin() is less secure. For some uses, it is far superior to getpwuid(), precisely for reasons of security.
[LanX]: search strategy => Perl Functions by Category
[Corion]: ... I found discussion of the who utility and that it uses the POSIX 2008 getlogin function (but that function was available much earlier and thus even exists in Perl, as a search for getlogin on CPAN brought up Perl 5.26 as first hit
[tye]: oh, LanX, but I was thinking that it was not a function that Perl provided.
[Corion]: Yeah, I also went a more roundabout way, just to find that the solution had been with Perl all along! ;)
[tye]: perhaps the "less secure" comment was motivated by old versions of getlogin() and trolled through the 'last' log trying to match your TTY. On modern Unix, I believe getlogin() just returns a fundamental bit of identity from your process.
[tye]: (Because every thing you do has that tag available for auditd.)
