Some Insteresting Nodes

The wonderful series, Meditations on Programming Theory, by mstone:

  1. MOPT-01 - assumptions and spaces
  2. MOPT-02 - substitution and formal systems
  3. MOPT-03 - identification, part 1
  4. MOPT-04 - identification, part 2

Useful Stuff


Hex viewer: perl -0777e'$i++,print $_.($i%20?" ":"\n")for unpack"(H2)*",<>;print"\n"' file

Useless Stuff

Finally, some japhs I can call my own

perl -e "s();echo Just another Perl hacker,|;;open _;print<_>" perl -pe "BEGIN{@ARGV='echo Just another Perl hacker,|'}"
Another variation on the theme:
perl -pe "BEGIN{@ARGV='perl -le print+q~Just\ another\ Perl\ Hacker,~| +'}"
And another. this one only works on *nix, I'm afraid.
perl -i\|perl -le 's//$^I -e"print q-Just another Perl hacker,-"/;open + _;'
The windows version isn't as nice. (I much prefer the -i\| in the *nix version.):
perl -i"|perl" -le "s//$^I -e\"print q-Just another Perl hacker,-\"/;o +pen _;"

Some Opinions

On Node Retitling

This summary is taken from a reply to Tanktalus somewhere under Consider this: What makes a good node title?:

The best titles are not the ones you think are best. In fact, the whole concept of best in this instance is a local optimization and a function of the searcher. Retitling nodes in an effort to bring them closer to our preconceived notions of what makes an ideal title is necessarily introducing inefficiency. Good search coverage is, essentially, an emergent phenomenon. The assumption that we can help it along by retitling nodes is fallacious.

A lot of &bull;
