perl user since 1995, still learning (naturally).

Favorite Larry Wall quote (seen on the perlunicode mail list on May 10, 2004):

Perl's always been about providing reasonable defaults, and will continue to do so. But changing what's reasonable is tricky, and sometimes you have to go through a period in which nothing can be considered reasonable.

Favorite code that I've posted:

[stevieb]: ahhh yes, it *is* a ref. I had forgotten that. I too have learned something. I quit too!!
[marioroy]: Is List::Util::XS a core Perl module?
[stevieb]: corelist List::Util::XS says "List::Util::XS was first released with perl v5.10.1"
[stevieb]: so yes, since v5.10.1 :)
[MidLifeXis]: According to [metaperl:// corelist], Perl 5.10.1
Lady_Aleena blurbles. One of her favorite modiles is now in "maintenance mode" in favor of a new fangled module.
[MidLifeXis]: D'oh. Slow out of the gate.
