in reply to The most useful key on my keyboard is:

Caps Lock is the most important key. No question about it.

(I have it remapped to ctrl after reading this. Even a Perl-hater like that gets a good idea sometimes :-) ).

    I have done the same. Hooray for xmodmap!

    You bring up an important point, though - are we voting on what a key does, or the key in its position does? I press Pause/Break a lot, since I remapped it to open a terminal, but it's never been used for its original purpose (whatever it is) in years.

[Dumu]: ambrus: it's about testing a file for being multiple possible file formats
[ambrus]: In particular, you might want to detect the encoding of a HTML file from between utf-16 versus ascii-based and encoding given in a META tag.
[ambrus]: Dumu: it should probably be safe to change the encoding if you rewind first with seek $file, 0, 0 first
[Dumu]: ambrus: good guess. I'm trying to contribute to a CPAN module, and the existing tests assume they're looking at text files
[Dumu]: ambrus: thank you. I was seeking afterwards. I'll seek first.
[jedikaiti]: Hello, Dumu!
[Dumu]: hello again jedikaiti! thanks everyone today for being in the monastery!
