in reply to I use Perl at work for

I am trying to use Perl at work. At work we just finished rolling out Unicenter TNG on Win32. Through the rollout we used DOS scripts to automate what we could but of course beyond simple stuff or extensive gyrations we now need something more advanced. Enter Perl and my impassioned plea to management for the use of Perl. Unfortunately my direct manager (who's mind is set in a '70s mainframe management mentality) just can't get his head around Perl and can't see why DOS (which he doesn't understand either) can't do all we need. Anyways, I hang around here and try to learn Perl while testing on my home network hoping that my manager will take early retirement and we can get on with the business at hand. A big thank you to the monks -- learning Perl is much easier with them

[choroba]: how many event types are there?
[Corion]: Also I found that I can't conveniently weaken an array slot, which also is inconvenient, as I want my one-shots to disappear if the caller discards them
[Corion]: choroba: Currently two or three that my program handles (WWW::Mechanize:: Chrome), but there might be more that become interesting
[Corion]: But I don't expect more than 100 to be active at the same time, so I'm not really sure if there is a not-too-fancy data structure that is maintained with few lines of code where the performance is better than the linear scan ;)
[Corion]: But I should do a mock-up program so that others can see what I'm talking about ;)
[robby_dobby]: Corion: I hope you know all too well that passing around "fancy" datastructures is a recipe for disaster :-)
[robby_dobby]: As in, it's-too-fancy- that-it-will-be- messy-to-handle
[choroba]: bit vectors as keys?
[robby_dobby]: Hmm, I keep falling asleep at my desk, while maintaining an active appearance. Am I getting old?
[robby_dobby]: Every time I fall asleep, there's a small guy in the dreams, shouting "Whoo!" and it jolts me awake. :/
