in thread RFC: Shell::DWIM

I had actually considered overloading system, but decided against it, at least as the primary interface. The reason was that the code is destined for two groups pf people - newbies and people writing large scale code who need a more maintainable solution. Overloading system for either group seemed to be the wrong way to go - especially because all of system's features are not supported

As for remembering more details with this module - what's to remember? It seems that remembering to chain your error variables to find the correct one is harder than print $RUN_ERROR. But then, I wrote Shell::DWIM to minimize my surprise. What exactly is it about the level of detail do you think makes this harder than system or japhygesis?

[Discipulus]: yes Eily, thanks oiskuu but i dont get it.. ;=( maybe I'll ask a SOPW
[LanX]: all combinations with same amount of left and right?
[Eily]: if you want to store in a structure with the coordinates as key, arrays might do, since the keys are going to be 0..n
[LanX]: (Pascale path)
[Eily]: paths like that
[Discipulus]: yes Eily++ (very keen) I want to integrate my project with a 17th experiments. I want to colorize in sequence all paths
[oiskuu]: Yeah, modifry the recursive func combinations() to return not the number, but the paths themselves.
[Eily]: Discipulus I'd do that by starting from the bottom node I think. That way it can inherit the paths from the two nodes above (and so on, recursively)
[LanX]: oh I meant fixed amount
[LanX]: every path must have l left and r right edges and l and r are fixed and l+r is the height
