New Golf section?

Keepers of the Monastery,

Is there enough interest in Perlgolf on this site to add a section for it? Currently, golf holes go to Meditations, but that doesn't seem right. I certainly enjoy the equivalent of putt-putt while here, am I alone?

    I personally consider golf a more appropriate form of "meditation" than a lot of things that go into the section. Each solution is like a koan: though it may seem inscrutable at first, careful contemplation will lead to enlightenment. What better way is there to focus upon Perl's true inner nature?


Re: New Golf section - how about "Challenges"?

    I think it would be perfectly ok to add a section for "challenges" or "contests" or some such, where monks could challenge each other in golf contests, and anything else perlish they could come up with.

    I am not sure though, if golf/challenges has enough traffic to motivate its own category though, although there might be more of that kind with its own category...

[RonW]: Hi, tye, thezip
[RonW]: I see useless errors liek that from Perl programs, too.
[tye]: well, you certainly don't see strack traces with all of the values removed from Perl.
[thezip]: Howdy RonW. Not in *my* logfiles you won't!
[tye]: and I never claimed anything about 100% on either side.
[RonW]: Presumably because the coders didn't realize that die and warn will append line number and file when the message strings doesn'r end with a line terminator
[tye]: And these are popular and not new python projects.
[thezip]: I had a user complain that they didn't receive an email from one of my processes. I went to the logfile and reproduced the entire contents of the email they would have received. Not my problem.
[tye]: How the heck does a web framework get popular when an unexpected exception gets logged as just "Exception" w/ no details?
[RonW]: There have been times when some one has modified my Perl code and decided to "clean up" my error/warning messages for me by adding line terminators
