and viola!

Err… “viola” is the French word for “raped”. You probably meant “voilà”. Just sayin’.

    “viola” is the French word for “raped”

    really? But most of the time, viola is just a violet.

      It's perfectly correct. Violer is the verb "to rape"; conjugated into the 3rd person, singular past tense, it's viola.

      But also it's a violet, and a musical instrument.

      I can't imagine many contexts where the three usages would be likely to be confused.

      package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name
        I can't imagine many contexts where the three usages would be likely to be confused

        There's this sweet innocent female musician (bit of a shrinking violet type) walking down the street carrying her viola ... and this French guy wants to rape her ...

        (Hmmm, might have the potential but a bit contrived, perhaps.)

        Cheers,
        Rob

[erix]: eh, 29 downvotes
[erix]: but I guess there's no stopping the herd
[1nickt]: Thank you haukex and hippo. I'm thinking of using IPC::System:: Simple::capture instead. But will go reread Hauke's treatise first :-)
[1nickt]: herveus is so weird. Love his reply in that SQLite thread! Much more effective warning system to have diverse monks debunk on technical merits...
[haukex]: IPC::System:: Simple does all the $? handling for you, and does it well
[erix]: weird problem btw (that SQLite question) - I asked astroboy to let us know if he finds the cause
[hippo]: The syntax is warning enough to me.
