in thread regarding intolerance to perl which I observe

You're right on all your statements and most of your assumptions, but please take into account the following:

  1. there was no automated testings before I came here. QA guys did all testings manually, slowly, step by step as written on their wikis, by hand.
  2. there was no standard for automated tests and no preferences for auxiliary scripting tools.
  3. considering the python knowledge. At this point there is me and one more guy from support with perl knowledge against one developer and one team lead with stated python backgound.
  4. I did provide the test suite as a helper tool to speed up the testing process. Those guys from QA was excited about it but then this management came with their decision to rewrite the whole test suite.

I insist this is rather irrational decision.

[oiskuu]: ... getlogin refers to tty owner; if you close STDIN, then getlogin returns undef. I get undef in my shell (running under X)
[tye]: Then there is a more persistent big of data similar to getlogin(). I don't believe even daemonizing drops it. So you can tell services that were started at boot time from those started by a person.
[tye]: I'll have to look into that later. getlogin() suites my current needs.
