  • High points for automatically using $|=1;
  • Medium points for using a Schwartzian without understanding why
  • Medium points for pointing out that File::Find needs a new interface
  • High points for suggesting ill-informed, inconsistent operator characters for P6
  • Medium points for using Unicode characters in source just because you can
  • High points for use of sub prototypes without knowing what it actually means
  • Very high points for authoring a crappy, poorly-supported module and putting it on CPAN

    Things that are done just because you can ... maybe a source of innovation, probably a good thing in play and music, often unnessecary and irritating in professional programming IMO.

[shmem]: Discipulus: the <<>> operator is quite new, it is in perl5.24 for instance
[Discipulus]: ah! thanks shmem it works in strawberry 5.24
[shmem]: ah. Introduced in 5.22.0, see perl5220delta
[Discipulus]: if so the previous error is a bit misleading, anyway
[shmem]: well, previous to that << was always treated as the left-shift operator
[Eily]: or the here-doc operator
[Eily]: which is actually how it is parsed in this case
[shmem]: older versions of perl can't guess that "use of <<>> may be implemented someday" :D
Discipulus how much wise my brothers are? ;=)
