( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Thanks Pete, that was a fun little project. I was happy to help since no one else on IRC seemed to notice your question and it interested me. It was a great experience for my first time on IRC. (I'd ignored IRC for longer than I ignored Perl 1..4. I'm not sure I have time to be a regular everywhere, but it was fun, so I'll be back.)

My notes on how we fixed this program, and how it connects to other things, are on my journal

In order to link a comment on your posting to my journal entry, I decided it was time to do a properly signed Monk posting -- so I had to re-create my twice-zombied ID and actually log in, so my first IRC session begats my first monkish scriptorium.

The whole Perl Monks theme amuses me in a nostalgic sort of way, since in the seventies, my main D&D characters ran a religious order for fun and profit.

So thanks for the opportunity!
