in thread Ruby Before Perl? Nah.

Have you, by chance, put this up at a Ruby-focused site? I'd be interested to read comments on it from entrenched Ruby folks.

I would be too... my (brief) encounters with the Ruby community so far have only turned up rampant fanboi-ism. Actually, it's one of the things that's put me off pursuing Ruby further. I'm sure it's just a case of bad luck, altho I do suspect that the average Rubyite is a bit more defensive than the averager Perler (I think Perl coders are just used to abuse nowadays). Would be interesting to compare the quality of responses to a post on a Ruby site to those on this site (which are all excellent so far).

[Cosmic37]: Permissions are interesting earthlings. Did nature determine who gives permission and who asks permission. Who was the first to get permission? Are you not related to them as one big earthling family?
[karlgoethebier]: Cojones! We need cojones!
[karlgoethebier]: Ouch! Permissions! We need permissions!
[BarApp]: I can not use modules. I gain temporary access and still can not use modules.
[Cosmic37]: ta erix - this szabo geezer is pretty cool methinks and he writes about undef but I cannot see instructions for redefining the record separator after having undefined it
[Corion]: $/ = "wahtever";
[Corion]: (it's a magic variable)
[karlgoethebier]: BarApp: whoami
[Cosmic37]: ok fankyou - I was wondering about that but thought there might be a redefine command or something; peachy
