in reply to split and assign to arrayref in one go?

An alternative to moritz's solution, you could do this:

@{ $aref } = split(/\D+/,"1,2xxx4:17");

It says "store the result of the split into the array referenced by $aref". If $aref is undefined or an ArrayRef already, this works, even with strict and warnings.

$ perl -w -Mstrict -MData::Dumper -e 'my $x; @{$x} = split /\s/, "the +one true"; print Dumper($x)' $VAR1 = [ 'the', 'one', 'true' ];

If $aref is a different kind of reference, then you will get a fatal "Not an ARRAY reference".

$ perl -w -Mstrict -MData::Dumper -e 'my $x = {}; @{$x} = split /\s/, +"the one true"; print Dumper($x)' Not an ARRAY reference at -e line 1.

    Autovivification if $aref hasn't been defined yet - this is also an elegant solution!!! I already went with moritz's idea, but will keep yours in mind for the next occasion.

[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?
