Problems? Is your data what you think it is?

Dumbest lines I've heard supposedly Technical people say.

1) What is CSV? (after a discussion where we were talking about storing data in a text based format and I repeatedly mentioned CSV files.)

2) When I issue the command "PUT <FILENAME>" it tells me the file doesn't exist! (After one of my employees ftp'd into one machine to GET a file and bring it to his local machine. I honestly thought he just meant to say GET; no, he was really issuing the PUT command to attempt a file retrieval.)

[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, my @music_times = qx(find ~/Music/Albums/ -type f -iname '*.mp3' -exec mp3info -p "%S\n" {} \;); #unfixed
shmem doesn't have mp3info, but mp3info2 - which is a perl script ;-)
[marioroy]: my @music_times = qx(find \$HOME/Music/ Albums/ -type f -iname '*.mp3' -exec mp3info -p "%S\\\n" {} \\;);
[marioroy]: might need 2 or 3 backslash for \n. Also \\;
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, there is MP3::Info/
[Discipulus]: too much complex qx when you know perl are better to avoid
[marioroy]: might need to backslash \'*.mp3\'
[marioroy]: It's a quoting issue inside qx. It's File::Find or qx. LA chooses qx. Almost there.
