Or you can use Math::BigInt->new, because the odds of there being a BigInt sub in the Math package are astronomical :)

    The odds are small, yes. In my decade plus of Perl usage I've encountered bugs because of this two, perhaps three, times. But each time it took me bloody ages to figure out, which is why I have been trying to avoid this ambiguity in recent work.

    The aliased module is, by the way, an excellent way of avoiding these problems:

    use aliased 'Math::BigInt'; my $seven = BigInt->new(7); # no ambiguity
    perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

[Corion]: marto: Redoing something on new infrastructure sounds fun. At least you can reuse your previous experience :)
[marto]: I'm looking forwads to it. The video sources are dying, and they don't have the hardware to play them back (old tape formats, not just VHS + Laserdisc etc)
[marto]: I'll be interested to see what difference in terms of file size/quality the new codecs make. I enjoy working on things like this, so that's a bonus
[Corion]: Ah, cool! So it's not an inhouse youtube but for a wider consumption
[marto]: last time it was IE6 clients, now they're on 11, so more scope there also, in terms of UI and playback
[marto]: in house as in Company network, not internet connected (power stations and the corporate HQs)
[Discipulus]: new Monsignor party! free beverages and pizza for all you monks! and a big thanks for the patience you deserved me during these years
[marto]: congrats Discipulus
[Discipulus]: only 4k points to sundial's level ..;=)
