I said "See perlbug" with no qualification.

You should have said it with qualification. You weren't clear and you should have been, that's all.

    When you use the term 'perldoc' unqualified, do you expect people to interpret it to mean 'perldoc perldoc'?

    Because that is the logical equivalent of what you are suggesting.

    You misunderstood -- which is fine, we all do from time to time -- but (to continue) trying to blame your misunderstanding on me is ...

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

      If you'd just communicate clearly, you'd be misunderstood less often, that's all. I only "blame" you for being terse and unclear.

        The let me be clear now.

        You said:"I've never written a Perl script that opens a text file in Notepad (or any interactive text editor), and I can't imagine why anyone else would.

        I offered you the name of a perl script, that has come with every perl distribution for at least the last 10 years and probably longer, that does exactly that.

        And that should and could have been end of ...

        You misunderstood, no one else did. So, own it.
