I am a Christian,
Perl advocate and coder.
MySQL is fast.

Haiku! Booya! Anyways, the logical combination of perl and a monastery setting is pretty cool to me. This Erudil guy knows the bible pretty well, emulated a Pauline epistle pretty well, but made it all perl-y. Interesting.

On the Seven Levels of Perl Mastery chart dealie, I believe I best fit in the Expert column, although I am quite certain I cover 0 ground in the Hacker column.

If anyone wonders about the picture... Ryu is mah hero. He's dedicated to becoming the absolute 100% best fighter he can. I'm dedicated to becoming the best coder I can. He'd make a great perl monk, ne?

[hippo]: Make it an option?
[Corion]: hippo: Yes, but I'm not sure that it's even worth the effort of implementing it at all...
[Corion]: You'll only ever need that option if you have a long-running query whose results are not cached by your DB already, and in those cases I presume that the programmer will want to maintain the temporary tables themselves - I wouldn't know when to drop ...
[Corion]: ... the temporary tables, and also don't have a good idea on how to create unique table names for them
[hippo]: OIC. In that case leave it out but invite feature requests and see if any of the users suggest it. :-)
[Corion]: Talking about this makes me realize that it's likely only a half useful idea. But it still would be convenient to have as an option...
[Corion]: hippo: Hmmm - yeah, I could document it and wait for code implementing that option to show up ;-D
