Have you read Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card? Remember how Ender spoofed the security of the battle station's computer system by creating a user named "Bernard  " (notice the space)?

That seems to have happened at Perl Monks. The latest new user list contains such users as <nobr>"  merlyn"</nobr> and <nobr>"  neshura"</nobr> (notice the spaces before the names).

I assume that merlyn and neshura did not create these accounts, so until this is cleared up, we might double-check the veracity of any questionable posts.

(Just looking to protect people's good names, in case there is malicious intent...)

    [Corion]: Discipulus: I think Module::Corelist ( or corelist ) can tell you that
    [Corion]: Meh - Module::CoreList
    [choroba]: Just use List::Util 1.29
    [choroba]: Be kind to people using old Perl with newer version of the module
    [Corion]: But why not simply specify 'List::Util' => 1.29 in your prerequisites? People might install a more recent version of the module into their Perl
    [Corion]: (what choroba said)
    [Discipulus]: ah! simpler and cleaner
    [Discipulus]: thanks! use List::Util 1.29 qw(pairmap ... just works!
    Discipulus is preparing another of his CUFP..
