Case Sensitive Super Search

It would be nice to be able to search with case sensitivity. Perl is a case-sensitive language.

    That is a pretty unconvincing argument. I think you'll have better luck getting a new feature added if you take more that 10 seconds composing your request. You could at least have mentioned that you were frustrated trying to super search on "DEFINED". Though, I just would have told you to super search on "sub defined;tie" with a separator of ";".

            - tye (but my friends call me "Tye")
      Thanks for adding to my knowledge regarding DEFINED.

      I wasn't making a request or argument. I was providing a data point: Here is one who would have found case insensitivity useful.

      I appreciate the site. I am willing to give feedback since it is invited. But I don't presume to know enough1 about web serving or search engines to make an argument for having such a feature added.

      Thanks, let me know if/when I may call you Tye.

      1  "Not knowing enough" sounds better than the equally true "not knowing anything". Vanity.

    your right rir we need to have the search engine case sensitive. I have no control over this sites contents. So I propose that to get your problem heard by someone who can fix it you should pentition the friar(s) or talk to a saint.


      That sort of petition/request is exactly what Perl Monks Discussion is for, actually.

      Makeshifts last the longest.

      Maybe you meant gods (the listing of the Big Dogs) and pmdev (the guys who do the most around here), instead of the initiate friar or the initiate saint. Maybe. :)
        yes, you are right I meant gods and frair is really inferior to actually changing the site.

[Corion]: ambrus: Well, for mathematical notation, I find blackboard much more convenient than a computer. But when inserting text or moving text around, the computer wins obviously
[ambrus]: But either of these is a big problem in practice, so I'd need to spend like thirty years of my life to solve (a) and five more years to solve (b)
[ambrus]: Corion: yes, CURRENTLY the blackboard is more convenient
[ambrus]: and it's not like I want to ban blackboards anyway
[ambrus]: you already have blackboards and a canvas for projector or overhead transparencies (or positive film slide projector, not used for maths) canvas in the same lecture halls today, and switch in a few minutes between presentations,
[ambrus]: they're only difficult to use together.
[ambrus]: overhead transparencies are a nice convenience by the way that mix the two slides, because you can write them in advance and edit them during the presentation easily. but they're not very much in fasion these days.
[ambrus]: you can even print them.
[Discipulus]: ambrus i'm trying out MremoteNG which wrap putty and rdp and many other things..
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, ideally you would have the ease of overhead projection transparencies and pens drawing on them, combined with the computer generated slide text...
