To extend that, you could always set up a collection of dispatch tables in your own code, and simply select the appropriate mapping using $^O. Then you code using your SKU mapped functions. It might not be the best, but you could always make it a module, and use it where needed.

[oiskuu]: Don't you think it's disturbing that the washing machine manual would say not to start it with pets inside?
[oiskuu]: So, how long did it take you to grow up?
[oiskuu]: Have you ever had your temperature taken from the other end?
[marto]: I read about a case where people were at a launderette, or whatever they're called in the US, and as a joke, put their toddler in with the washing, then closed the door
[Your Mother]: (Work in progress.)
[marto]: unaware that the model in question started the cycle automatically, provided the money/token had already been provided
[marto]: CCTV footage of the joke gone wrong is used in educational materials now IIRC
[ambrus]: oiskuu: definitely not silly. have you ever tried to remove cat hair or dog hair from clothes? for many clothes, it's pretty hard, and running the washing machine with a cat inside would get the hair on everything.
[oiskuu]: YM, I'm interested in your questions... maybe start a a thread at polls.
[oiskuu]: marto, it ended badly? I doubt the power is easy to plug at those installations?
