Wow, I've not seen such a rant since BK coined "use strict is gay" way back in 2001 (which inspired Acme::USIG).

Update: Though the original historic bulletin board response from "bk" to Dave Cross is currently available via the Wayback Machine link above, I also embed the original text (including typos) below because it is too important to Perl history to risk losing:

    [stevieb]: I'm working on it to fatten it up and make it more reliant so I can finalize my Raspberry Pi automated build system for that software :) It's all well and fun, until I try to make it work with Windows lol
    [shmem]: "debugging a program is more difficult than to write it in the first place. If you code your program as smart as you are, you are, by definition, too dumb to debug it."
