in thread Religion in the Monastery.

I don't know about anyone else, but my original take on the whole Monastery metaphor attracting religious people thing is just the name. For example, once someone is visiting PerlMonks with any regularity they can obviously tell that this isn't a religious site. Well, unless you count Perl as a religion. ;)

My thought on the matter was that a religious person might see the name PerlMonks, be intrigued, and pay a visit.

    On second thought, maybe you're right. I mean, there's Jesusgeeks, Christdot etc., so maybe some people are confused by the name "PerlMonks". It just didn't ring a bell with me, because when I see "Monk", I think of culture, not of faith.

[stevieb]: 80 clauses? dispatch table?
[GotToBTru]: no, lookup
[stevieb]: no, I mean have you considered using a dispatch table. an 80 condition if/else is huge :)
[GotToBTru]: that is how this should have been done, no question
[GotToBTru]: probably back when there were 5 or so clauses
