|Perl: the Markov chain saw|
Well, I starterd reading this thread in complete agreement with Abigail, but now I've thought about it a bit, I think the rule should be - post a reply if you're pretty sure you're right.
And if you are wrong, go back to your post and edit it, using <strike> tags to cross it out. This ensures that no unsuspecting users will take the wrong advice in future if your post pops up as a search result. The last time I was totally wrong I learnt a valuable lesson - I don't think I'll ever forget how || and or work again!
Don't take put downs as personal - some people here do lack in the tact dept sometimes, but make up for it by being very right. Learn from your mistake. And next time someone asks, you'll know :)
