( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I was a *nix sysadmin that was in love the *nix shells, but found they could be a bit limiting. I used 'sed' sometimes, but secretly hated it. Used 'awk' a little more, but secretly hated it also. So I kept hearing about this language called perl that was already on my machine. I did a 'man perl'. Hmm.. some other man pages. After thinking, "well this is what I really wanted out of sed, awk, sort and yes grep, I went and picked up Learning Perl and Programming Perl the next day.

What used to be annoying SysAdmin stuff was fun again. My days seemed less stressful, the sun seemed somewhat brighter (or was that the glow of my VT320).

    [Corion]: A good daypart!
    Corion feels slightly bad for initiating a discussion yesterday and then running away. I guess I should write that up as a meditation or SoPW
    [Corion]: Not the "running away" part but the question+ discussion about IO-less HTTP modules
    [Corion]: (or how/where to patch AnyEvent::HTTP or LWP::UserAgent to take control of both the callstack and the data transfer)
