This code creates an Excel-window where you can use the all the Excel-abilities!

Along the lines of what dragonchild pointed out, that code does not really create an Excel window at all. It returns Excel data to the client, but it's the client's duty to handle it correctly by, for example, opening it in an Excel window. Under normal circumstances, this task is beyond the scope of the Perl script. The client must be configured correctly ( ie Excel is installed properly ) for this to work as expected.

[tye]: probably something in the init subsystem that does the mounting that you could disable and reboot.
davido needs to close laptop to board flight home from yapc.
[davido]: I'll look into it in a few hours probably.
[davido]: when i do get to that point I think I'll do it in a vm snapshot just in case. :)
[oiskuu]: tye, you were right: loginuid/sessionid are part of task struct if compiled with AUDITSYSCALL. I have some doubts if you should actually depend on that feature.
[Corion]: oiskuu: Depends on what you want to do with that information
[tye]: I'm not depending on that feature. But I could in this environment. I'm using getlogin(). shrug
[Corion]: For benign logging (which user started this DB instance), it's OK
[tye]: We use auditd for security monitoring. So we can rely on auditing being enabled. I'm not sure who would want to not be able to audit. Maybe some VM inside another system with audit?
