in thread Do you have a middle name?

My sister's Jewish husband's family has the same tradition: no child can have the same name as a living relative. Considering that my nephew John (on my wife's side) has exactly two male cousins, both of whom named John, I can see the reasons for the tradition.

Of course, I share the same middle name as my father and his father, whose middle name was from his grandfather. I got my first name from my great-grandfather.

My father claimed he and my mother spent a lot of effort on names, so I don't have the first name as any of my 20-odd cousins I have between my father's and mother's sides.

[ambrus]: choroba: heh heh... I have such a doc bug report somewhere. fixed by now.
[Corion]: Once upon a time I had automatic tests for checking the synopsis, but I stopped doing that because the setup was too fragile on CPAN testers for extracting code from the SYNOPSIS.
[Corion]: Maybe I should move the extraction of the code from the SYNOPSIS section into the author tests, or something like that...
[choroba]: Corion Sounds reasonable
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah - I basically have the same for regenerating README and README.mkdown already, except that I do that in Makefile.PL, but I guess one or the other thing should somehow work ;)
[ambrus]: was this bug: https://rt.cpan. org/Public/Bug/ Display.html?id= 59814
[Corion]: ambrus: Oh - that one would be much harder to automate... The SYNOPSIS section should mostly be a runnable program IMO, but I write only small snippets in my documentation for single functions/methods, and creating the appropriate environment for ...
[Corion]: ... those in an automated fashion seems somewhat hard to me. Although it should do wonders for the test coverage ;)
