( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I know we just had a discussion on this yesterday, I was thinking of making this a reply to it, but decided it was worthy of its own topic. (I was on the CB for much of the discussion, actually, though somewhat quiet, as I wanted to do a little thinking before making a fool of myself -- which early results indicated I still did quite effectively.)

I wanted to point out a rather radical solution to problems with homenoding, and give some background on aspects of the problem that aren't as obvious to the more inexperienced monks (such as myself) (I'm, BTW, muchly indebted to virtualsue, who answered my "research" on the chatterbox).

I think both homenoding and moderating were built in as defense against a Troll menace that never came. I could well be wrong here. May the replies roll in.

Also, for the record, so long as I think my grammar and spelling are good enough to not get in the way of my point, on forums that I think are above caring about such mundanary, I often let them lie. Perhaps I will be more careful about them here, as it seems people care more then I thought.

Thank you for your consideration,
Just Another Perl Scribe,
James Mastros, TheOrbTwo

    [Corion]: hippo: Yes, but I'm not sure that it's even worth the effort of implementing it at all...
    [Corion]: You'll only ever need that option if you have a long-running query whose results are not cached by your DB already, and in those cases I presume that the programmer will want to maintain the temporary tables themselves - I wouldn't know when to drop ...
    [Corion]: ... the temporary tables, and also don't have a good idea on how to create unique table names for them
    [hippo]: OIC. In that case leave it out but invite feature requests and see if any of the users suggest it. :-)
    [Corion]: Talking about this makes me realize that it's likely only a half useful idea. But it still would be convenient to have as an option...
    [Corion]: hippo: Hmmm - yeah, I could document it and wait for code implementing that option to show up ;-D
