in thread Resources for Functional Programming?

That last bit is always the rub, no? If something is largely pre-implemented (via CPAN, etc.) in Perl and Perl will perform adequately, I tend to use it. If I'm going to need to write a lot of my own code I tend to use Lisp. Fortunately more and more useful stuff is becoming available in Lisp all the time, e.g. at Cliki. Anywhere near CPAN? No. But often enough to push the amount of stuff I need to do on my own down enough to where I can use Lisp.

    Thanks for the Lispy links. I *did* like Lisp, it was just that I didn't know how to do a lot in it. Fun language, challenges your neurons to reprogram themselves, and I consider that a Good Thing (TM).

[ELISHEVA]: I may have to resort to SOPW - but was hoping that this would be something simple
[erix]: I'd just remove the BOM, it is pretty simple
[ELISHEVA]: Simple yes. and I did consider that. but this isn't one off . An important data source that I don't control is generating bom prefixed utf8 files and I'd rather not have to be munging files every few months.
[erix]: on teh other hand a SOPW is pretty much garanteed to get an answer from tux (and probably the module fixed)
[ELISHEVA]: plus it bugs me that something that *should* be simple, *should* work- unicode and noms aren't exactly the new kids on the block
[ELISHEVA]: well then since the obvious possible mistakes on my part have been ruled out, SOPW it is.
[ELISHEVA]: the data source, or one of them, is the OECD - they provide a *lot* of data that ought to be easily available to perl programmers.
[erix]: it might be cunning to mention the module in the title... :)
[ELISHEVA]: fancy that - a title that actually describes the problem :-)
[ELISHEVA]: but actually thanks for the reminder
