in reply to why a nodelet can be kept agains author wish?

Tye is exactly right on this. One of the only nodes I have with negative XP is one of the nodes I learned the most on. tilly corrected me on basic error handling, and our (tilly and I) ensuing conversation via CB ended up changing one of my mindsets and made me a better coder. I left it in that state as a reminder to me, and an example to any other learning monk that might benifit from tilly rightfully scorching me on simple issue.

The other issue I have is that I saw an interesting title today: eWeek article on open source, however the node did not reference where the other article was. I eventually found it, but a quick edit that said, "Posted earlier, see A Published Special Report on Open Source and Perl Justifications for enterprises" would have made life much easier.

There are reasons for reaping, but I believe as Tye does, to much is being reaped and deleted which does not allow others to learn from the posters mistakes.

"Nothing is sure but death and taxes" I say combine the two and its death to all taxes!

[stevenlm87]: Needs help. I am taking an online class for perl and is using Padre. How can I get a list from the input in this code? print "What are your favorite hobbies? "; my $hobbies = <STDIN>; chomp $hobbies; print "Your favorite hobbies are '$hobbies'\n";
[toolic]: what does your input look like?
