in reply to T.I.T.S. Or, Try It To See.

This is a good philosophy for Perl. It's not so good if you're in the cockpit of a military aircaft, wondering what that big red button does ;-).

Much depends on whether you can afford the luxury of "trying it to see". If you're constantly under tight deadlines, you may just need to get the thing done, do it the way that works, and don't ask too many questions about the 'how' or 'why'. The amateur has a slight edge here - s/he can take the time to try it to see. OTOH, the pros often have each other to ask, so maybe it's not such an advantage after all...

[Corion]: Ouch. I just learned something about Chrome - the "version numbers" are not really feature numbers... Chrome 62 still gets new features even though Chrome 64 is out and Chrome 65 is the dev version
[erix]: why ouch? Something to be said for that ,surely?
LanX is a dev version
[marto]: That reminds me, I made some notes somewhere with regard W::M::C, I'll get round to a PR when I've time to flesh it out
[Corion]: erix: But that makes for fun bug hunting. "What version of Chrome are you running?" "v62". "I also run v62 and it works on my machine". :-(
[Corion]: marto: Great, looking forward to the PR!
