in reply to Beware - improper context usage can be considered criminal activity!

With all due respect, it doesn't look like the kids actually have a "criminal record" here.

According to the story, they were questioned by police, who are keeping their notes on file:

His father repeated to me twice, as if he couldn't quite believe the whole thing had actually happened, that the police gave him a case number and are keeping the report on file.

No charges, no arrest, no conviction, just some notes in a file folder in a detective's filing cabinet somewhere. That's not quite a criminal record.

Peace,

    Funny article!

    Funny too, that when I get stuck on something at times I can just randomly browse PerlMonks....not even a directed search and find my answer. Indeed mystical.

    I've been looking for a way to quote safe a large array of strings for entry into a database (can't have the ' without screwing up syntax)

    but the DBI ->quote( @array ), it doesn't like,

    so I've been trying to get all of @array into a single string because THAT I can quote.

    but NOW

    I understand why my $allofarray = @array returns a number of elements in the array, but my ( $allofarray ) = @array returns the first string in the array....now to just figure out how to get all of the elements into one long string...
