( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Which is why I was so puzzled as to why the file(s) would take on the requested "MimeType" after changing that line.

From my experiments (and the documentation), file can only guess at the encoding by the presence or absence of specific codepoints. If your file has only those UTF-8 codepoints which also fit the Latin-1 encoding, perhaps it's all too happy to report the file as Latin-1. In my experience, iconv doesn't add a UTF-8 BOM to the start of the file. When I did that with Vim, file was a lot more specific.

    [Lady_Aleena]: Corion, ouchy.
    [Corion]: (maybe I should write this up as a SoPW) - currently, the "most efficient" data structure I come up with is a single array which I scan for the first fitting one-shot. Not efficient but I don't expect more than five outstanding one-shots anyway
    [choroba]: can't you create a meta-key corresponding to the disjunction of the events?
    [robby_dobby]: Corion: Heh. This whole thing smells of Strategy Pattern or MVC pattern.
    [Corion]: And performance linear to the number of registered one-shots doesn't feel that bad. Maybe I should collect statistics on how many callbacks are outstanding ;)
    [Corion]: choroba: Yes, but the longer I thought about efficient hashes mapping the event type back to their callbacks, and how to keep them in sync, the more I thought that all that optimization might just not be worth it, even if it's horribly inelegant
    [Lady_Aleena]: My biggest problem with hashes at the moment is one with 2,501 keys.
    [choroba]: how many event types are there?
    [Corion]: Also I found that I can't conveniently weaken an array slot, which also is inconvenient, as I want my one-shots to disappear if the caller discards them
    [Corion]: choroba: Currently two or three that my program handles (WWW::Mechanize:: Chrome), but there might be more that become interesting
