in reply to perl sucks

package ACME::WeightWatchers; use Carp; require Exporter; our @ISA = qw(Exporter); our @EXPORT = 'watchsize'; sub watchsize { local $/ = "\n"; my $caller = caller; open _, "$caller::$0"; while (<_>) { $. == 40 and confess "no more Perl for me, unless less than 40 lines\n"; } }

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use ACME::WeightWatchers; watchsize(); # your code here ... print "I made it under 40!\n";

[ambrus]: nysus: make sure you enter at least two lines for the title and then preview, and read warnings the preview form prints
[davies]: There is an option (I have it set) to force preview before submission. Perhaps your option has been set (accidentally?) and you are not expecting it.
[ambrus]: sorry, I mean at least two words for the title and then preview
[ambrus]: davies: that option is the default. and it's not really "force", it just hides the button.
[marto]: yes, not reading the errors displayed has been a cause of this type of report in the past
[nysus]: Ambrus, ah. I think that was the problem. I'll try. Thanks!
[davies]: Ambrus: you've missed it by a couple of weeks, but consider next year's London Perl Workshop.
