in reply to Perl oddities

I'd like to know why POSIX.pm doesn't include an interface to strptime(3). Time::Piece has it, but it's broken (you can't get proper epoch values out of it when you use it as your constructor). I'm looking forward to Perl6's OO-based time functions already.

[stevieb]: I am thankful that I fell into Perl years ago in the manner I did. I don't believe there is another language that people care about so much, that they're willing to give everything. Langs come and go, but in Perl, it seems, things remain consistent.
[stevieb]: The people back then (~2000) are the same people now, but with much more experience. I'm appreciative that I fell into the Perl rabbit hole.
[stevieb]: Coding circles around Python devs, showing how unit tests should be done, enabling easy access to everything, learning basic C to wrap for direct hardware access... I am thankful.
