And another.

I prefer maintaining relationships with a few good consulting firms so that hourly programmers and technicians can be brought in as needed. Ideally, the contract should allow right-to-hire but that may not be in your interests (but the loss can be mitigated by charging finder's fees).

It's obviously also in your best interest to engage with good clients with proper expectations and experience with consulting resources. For example: once a consultant has established him/herself with us we give them leeway such as flexible working hours and dress code. Although none has ever reached the pinnacle of working in their underwear :)

We are also accustom to having contract resources working with our teams so once the resource is established, they tend to integrate well into the team and the lines between contract and employee resources fade away.

[1nickt]: pryrt I am creating a Type to check valid user IDs, which must be a whole number greater than or equal to zero. I would like to disallow 1.0 but because of this behaviour, by the time it is checked by the constraint, it *is* an Int.
[LanX]: should this be considered? Re: Parsing .txt into arrays

[pryrt]: LanX, I would vote "keep" if it were considered: it's not helpful, but it could be taken multiple ways, not all of which are offenseive...
[pryrt]: 1nickt: if you are checking for valid user IDs, then I wouldn't care about the difference between 1.0 and 1: I would take either as a valid representation of the integer user ID#1
[LanX]: and this Re^2: extract column data
[Lady_Aleena]: I have two sub recurse { my ($directory, $other_var) = @_; my @files = file_list($directo ry); for my $file (@files) { if (-f $file) { do "stuff"; } if (-d $file) { recurse(" $directory/$file" , $other_var); } } } This was when I hated File::Find.
[tobyink]: 1nickt: your code?
[LanX]: pryrt: yeah, that's why I didn't consider, but the last >10 anonymous posts are from the same troll-person
[jdporter]: is there a module for expanding tabs in text?
