in reply to Shoot yourself on the foot

You wouldn't dream of handrolling your own routine to shoot yourself in the foot due to the expeted abuse from your fellow monks for reinventing the wheel, so . . .

You search CPAN and eventually find SUICIDE:LITE which contains the sub footshoot. You download, install, read the docs and find out it only works through OO, so go lookup what -> does again, and after 6 hours you have a 37 character implementation. That is immediately trumped by somebody elses 35 character implementation which leaves out one set of supurfluous perens.

    very sorry... hopefully i can delete these extras soon... newbie mistake :(
      While feverishly trying to create an elite script to shoot yourself in the foot, you realize that the very appendage to be shot no longer appears. In the panic, you right a different application to run to try and correct this horrendous mistake, however while frantically hacking this program, you make a fatal mistake, and the leg that is sans foot, falls off. At this point, you are more frantic than a cat in an old warehouse, you think you may have patched the code and your fingers fall off. Now, you begin typing with your nose. Running through every different method you can think of to create a panacea to fix the bug, you accidently run the program (because your nose eye coordination is a bit on the shabby side) and your head falls off. So now you are torso, leg, and decapitated head, and you decide it is no longer worthwhile to attempt to shoot yourself in the remaining foot, because you have obtained this objective in a different manner, and hey is that not what Perl is all about!?
