in thread Code to solve the "matrix formation" puzzle

Good point.

While I never use these constants for anything other than setting variables I declare, it would be easy to use them otherwise. I started this habit when I was first learning perl as a way of distinguishing "logical" and "numerics" in my code and for setting "logical" options in some modules (like DBI).

For example:

$gDBHandle = DBI->connect ( 'dbi:Oracle:' . ORATNS, ORAUSER, ORAPASS, { AutoCommit => FALSE, PrintError => FALSE, RaiseError => FALSE, } ) || die 'Could not connect to Oracle ['.$DBI::errstr.' - '.$DBI::er +r.']';
This just helped me remember I was turning "off" those options instead of setting some "numeric" to zero.

Thank you for the suggestion.

[Corion]: :-D
Corion discovers a new shiny toy to try out over the (longish) weekend. Since I've done some more with websockets, maybe I'll try writing a webserver that implements hot-reloading of HTML(+CSS, +Javascript) in the browser. Edit the local file and ...
[Corion]: ... the browser(s) get a ping to a) refresh the page or b) reload "just" the changed parts, keeping the scroll position etc.
[Corion]: But I also have to look at how I can make WWW::Mechanize:: RemoteBrowser a reality, and how to make it safe from malicious content ;)
[Corion]: Part of wanting hot-reloading is that I think I've stumbled on a very simple set of CSS that I maybe want to use for a blog, but I want to try that out on mobile too, and I also want to add/modify it slightly so it has a header too...
