Top 10 reasons to start using ack

ack is a tool like grep, aimed at programmers with large trees of heterogeneous source code.

ack is written purely in Perl, and takes advantage of the power of Perl's regular expressions.

On 2005-10-14, I cleaned up some ancient cruft. The most interesting thing I found (and fixed) was the following. In the thread of Site How To (which, btw, is no longer an official site doc), some people had posted "root" question nodes as replies. Apparently they didn't know how to go to Seekers of Perl Wisdom and scroll to the bottom. So I yanked those nodes out and made them root nodes in the SoPW section. They were:

A programmer who hasn't been exposed to all four of the imperative,

fry.  Programming is not a skill one develops in five easy lessons.

Interesting thread: Useless unless. The "suggestion that Perl should have an otherwise" came from me. This thread is really about two issues: unless and otherwise. I don't care about the unless bit.

last hour of cb

    [Voronich]I have never in my life encountered the level of consistent blatant lying that I have in this firm. Sure, $job-5 I had someone try to nail me for his production bug, but that was one shot. This is amazing.
    [Voronich]I've gotten to the point where I spend something on the order of 15-20% of my time deflecting. And I'm talking about selectively editing emails. World class demonstrable deceit.
    [Voronich]Subtle as a hand grenade in a barrel of oatmeal.
    [MidLifeXis]Mmmm. Oatmeal.
    [Voronich]with lots and lots of cinnamon, sugar and butter.
    [Voronich]Voronich wonders how oatmeal would ferment...
    [MidLifeXis]Seems like it would be, mmm, stout?
    [MidLifeXis]"Oatmeal. It's not just for breakfast anymore"
    [tubaandy]mmmm oatmeal stout...
    [tubaandy]Founders Breakfast Stout is a very good beer. If you haven't tried it, it's excellent.
    [MidLifeXis]Can you drink it with a fork? :-)
    [blue_cowdawg]Mmmmmmm beer.
    [tubaandy]MidLifeXis, close. It has hot chocolate flavors and is very smooth.
    [blue_cowdawg]Had a River Horse Belgian Trippel last night. Still trying to figure out its grain bill. Very nice.
    [MidLifeXis]Although I had one that claimed chocolate flavors, and the grain was just burnt.
    [jellisii2]It's Beer:30 somewhere.
    [MidLifeXis]Only finished half of it.
    [MidLifeXis]But I have had some very good stouts; some on the market, some private stock (roomate in college was a homebrewer)
    [Voronich]Voronich wishes he liked beer. Seems there's so much to it, especially now that I'm running with mead brewing.
    [GotToBTru]it's an aquired taste
    [GotToBTru]acquired? that looks better
    [choroba]Are there any non-acquired tastes?
    [choroba]or is it just a question of at what age?
    [GotToBTru]certainly the shift in taste from sweet to bitter is an age thing
    [Voronich]Hops. I can not stand hops.
    [MidLifeXis]MidLifeXis is reminded of the kids drinking story "Hops in Pops"...
    [Voronich]I had a gf a few years ago who was determined to figure out what it was about beer that I found so caustic. Came down to hops. blech. awful.
    [Voronich]Under duress I can get down a pint of Turbo Dog. But that's about it.
    [blue_cowdawg]for those that can't stand hops... stay away from Arrogant Old Bastard.
    [MidLifeXis]Last couple of years /me has stayed away from wheat. It has really cut into my beer selection. :-/
    [blue_cowdawg]Wheat beers give me a ferocious headache. Yet the hefeweizen I made three years ago did not.
    [choroba]I love wheat beers. But I can't drink much of them
    [choroba] the same evening
