Oh. I was looking for a reference to Notepad in perldoc perlbug, and there isn't one.

    See line 260


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

        Yes there is, you're not looking at the file they linked to, which reads:

        || ($Is_MSWin32 && "notepad")
        perldoc -m perlbug
        $ perldoc -m perlbug |Wc --lines 1425

    Jim, you misunderstood BUK's intention and I would have too.

    That's OK, it's nobodies fault, just a misunderstanding.

    Now, please don't fall into the trap of quarreling 10s of levels deep.

    You're only wasting time and energy.

    Just ignore this subthread, like I do and enjoy your live! =)

    Cheers Rolf

    PS: Plz take it as a compliment that I'm asking you to be the smart one who stops it...

      I had just discovered this 2012 thread in PerlMonks Discussion, which I wish I'd read much earlier. Very enlightening reading. I didn't "fall into the trap." I confess:  I set it. ;-)

      Plz take it as a compliment that I'm asking you to be the smart one who stops it...

      You saw this final post, right? I expected this absurd non sequitur to make it fairly obvious to veteran PerlMonks what I'd just done. I certainly proved my conjecture—at least to myself. ;-)

        I don't get it, what do you think you had just done?
