|Perl Monk, Perl Meditation|
Were I to have mentioned a well-publicised recent posting, and similar recent postings of the same general content, which led me to ask about fundamentals... perhaps I would be viewed as being personally critical of the authors, which would have missed the real message...
Envy could be wrong, or it might be inspirational. But in any event its not something worth discussing publically on a whim. Philisophically, my inherent irony RE: XP-publicity does relate to Narcissus.
But I am more bored than envious, and seek not my own stature as much as straightening out the spines of all. Perhaps fewer articles should be put on the gates, and Monks should have to go to SoPW and other sections for items truly noteworthy. But, alas, I am a puny monk not privvy to the guidance-planning of the Elders!
But no matter the circumstance, negativity is is a facet of critism that when directed personally can be risky, to say the least. Hence, the Koan.
I was s/was/am/ trying to make all reflect a bit more about the meaning of complexity, and avoid 'sidebar discussions' of rather obtuse, fringe cases and refocus attention on handing out basic wisdom to answer such questions merely through self reflection.
To that end, I appreciate your mention of Tutorials, and remain curious if this subject is sufficiently interesting or requires more coverage -- justifying additions to our Tutorials library. To that end, Monks please remain !mute.
