B is ultimately designed to compile C and that someone might be able to invoke the compiler through some bug somewhere I wasn’t aware of.

Uh… not exactly. B has nothing to do with C compilation, and even B::CC has no code to invoke a compiler.

What I was referring to is BEGIN blocks, use, and the like.

Makeshifts last the longest.

    . Oh, OK, I think I understand now. When I read,

    This compiler backend takes Perl source and generates C source code corresponding to the internal structures that perl uses to run your program. When the generated C source is compiled and run, it cuts out the time which perl would have taken to load and parse your program into its internal semi-compiled form.

    That put me under the impression that it generated and compiled C code. I kept wondering about that blurb near the bottom about "some compilers." I just didn't put two and two together, my bad.

[james28909]: yep, i am scraping a websites date/time stamp from an article. none of that is relevant though because the strings i get are as expected. the returned data from the website is the list of @weekdays
[james28909]: i need to convert those @weekdays to an numerical date based off of scalar localtime
[james28909]: i have thught about this and though about it lol
[james28909]: also remember, that if 'Today' is may 1, then Yesterday is not may 31 lol
[james28909]: theoretically speaking ofcourse
