Tandem once built a machine that could not die. It could fry processors, memory, backplanes, power supplies and continue to live.

Tandem once built a machine to government specs. It matched every Mil-spec tossed at it and stood triumphant amongst the rubble of its bid opponents.

Tandem once built a machine almost no one bought and fewer kept running. Tandem went against Cray and IBM at their height of competition and found that slow, wonky, proprietary, 100%, and tool-less lost out to fast, well-documented, proprietary but cloned, 99.9% with great tech support and helpful reps, and fabulous programming tool-sets.

Tandem, last I heard, was an in-joke at Compaq, where their PC department had already re-invented every useful tech in the box and couldn't imagine why their bosses bought the dead husk of a company. Patents, in case you are wondering...

And that is why, when yon troll brags about Tandem, everyone thinks he means bicycles. :) :)

    [hippo]: :-D
    [Eily]: you mean a dll where the SW was written in perl? That sounds unlikely
    [muthusathish]: please help me regarding this
    [hippo]: Easier just to go and look at the source, no?
    [Eily]: mostly because perl isn't compiled in the usual sense of the meaning, you can't execute the opcodes directly, you need the perl engine
    [muthusathish]: i dont have the environment too, but i need to get the logics so that i can re-wite
    [Eily]: what makes you think your dll is "perl based" ?
    [muthusathish]: i dont have source code too
    [muthusathish]: it is used in VB 6 appln, while debugging is getting error
    [hippo]: Somebody has. Ask the author.
