( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I guess I have most of the same thoughts others have.   I worry that Larry and Damian might overreach and get some really basic thing muddled.   I don't want to have to do $filehandle.autoflush(1) instead of $|++.   And '_' instead of '.' for concat?!

But then I was reading exegesis 3 and came to Damian saying "in perl5 that would be...".   I had a momentary sensation like accidentally coming on some Fortran code or something and thinking: "Boy, I remember when we had to go through all that just to get something done".   So, now I've stopped worrying (and I'm getting impatient with perl5).

(Maybe currying will transform Perl in perl6 like references did in perl5.)

    [1nickt]: stevieb I don;t doubt that there's a difference. BestBuy has "consumer" models only on display.
    [ambrus]: 1nickt: for some reason, these days they call every computer "gaming", even ones that gamers wouldn't buy. I've bought a keyboard that was labelled "gamer", despite that it has hard springs and seems to be way better for typing than for gaming;
    [1nickt]: I though the gamers like that because they bash the keys so hard.
    [ambrus]: and I've seen motherboards with no fast expansion ports for a video card but built-in hardware RAID advertized as "gaming".
    LanX has a shaming laptop
    [ambrus]: 1nickt: my impression is that the gamers like the softer springs, because fast reaction time is more important to them then feedback from keypresses to recognize typos.
    [1nickt]: Ah, I see. I did read some gamer mag reviews, and yes, they lamented the fact that laptops with no discrete video card are sold as "gaming" hardware.
    [1nickt]: But, they do have red keyboard backlighting! And gargoyles on the front, or words like "Maxxx" here and there. They know their demographic!
    [1nickt]: True gamers don;t buy Dells, HPs, or Lenovos, I think ;-)
    [ambrus]: The keyboard I bought doesn't have backlighting. I specifically had to select for that, because so many keyboards these days have lights. Why would I want lights in the keyboard? I want lights in the room, such as on the ceiling, not in the keyboard.
