in reply to print or die?

So, how important is checking print statements? I assume it would depend on the application and/or system. Once in a blue moon, one of the cluster environments that I use has funny file writing issues (which err on the side of not writing), so it is something I worry about.

well, if user quotas and harddisk free space aren't monitored routinely (like hourly or daily or weekly) then checking print statements becomes more important

LanX aggrees, LA isn't normal ;-P
[Lady_Aleena]: LanX, thanks bunches.
[Lady_Aleena]: Rigth now I'm ranting in my head about an old subject.
[1nickt]: Hm, that is, how to prevent Perl from turning 1.0 into 1? I feel sure this must be an faq, but am reading perlnum and not finding the answer ...
[Lady_Aleena]: 1nickt, why does it matter in this case?
[1nickt]: Hm, perhaps this? "Operators which expect an integer force the argument into the integer format."
[1nickt]: Can this be? So print
[1nickt]: ... "expects an integer" ?
