RE (tilly) 5: Win32::MemoryInfo

in reply to (Guildenstern ) REx4: Win32::MemoryInfo
in thread Win32::MemoryInfo

Silly trick:
my %args = %default, @_; foreach my $arg (keys %args) { unless (exists $allowed{$arg}) { croak("Unrecognized argument '$arg' passed to MemoryStatus."); } }
Just put all possible defaults in %default and the user can override any combination they want, and your %allowed check will catch most typos and misunderstandings of the API.

[1nickt]: herveus is so weird. Love his reply in that SQLite thread! Much more effective warning system to have diverse monks debunk on technical merits...
[haukex]: IPC::System:: Simple does all the $? handling for you, and does it well
[erix]: weird problem btw (that SQLite question) - I asked astroboy to let us know if he finds the cause
[hippo]: The syntax is warning enough to me.
[1nickt]: hippo lately I can tell just by the fact that Anonymous posts a reply after some hours that it is more than likely That Monk.
