"It`s definitely a shame that no other script language derivates the ideas of Perl.

Actually, Ruby is pretty similar to Perl.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    In some way, if compared with something sufficiently different (say Fortran), it might exhibit some similarities. Don't expect to like Ruby if you like Perl though and don't expect to like the community if you like this one.

    Ruby is an ill-designed language with annoying syntax, artificial restrictions and insanely named builtins and libraries. Luckily the hype has faded away already.

      Are you just quoting Joel or is this your own hard earned opinion?

        It's my own opinion. I had been forced to work with Ruby a few years ago.

[hippo]: Make it an option?
[Corion]: hippo: Yes, but I'm not sure that it's even worth the effort of implementing it at all...
[Corion]: You'll only ever need that option if you have a long-running query whose results are not cached by your DB already, and in those cases I presume that the programmer will want to maintain the temporary tables themselves - I wouldn't know when to drop ...
[Corion]: ... the temporary tables, and also don't have a good idea on how to create unique table names for them
[hippo]: OIC. In that case leave it out but invite feature requests and see if any of the users suggest it. :-)
[Corion]: Talking about this makes me realize that it's likely only a half useful idea. But it still would be convenient to have as an option...
[Corion]: hippo: Hmmm - yeah, I could document it and wait for code implementing that option to show up ;-D
