You missed out the village of Borg that's a "suburb" of Perl.

The Community Perl once sponsored the German Perl Workshop by sending boxes containing bottles of Perlwein from Perl

    Actually, being an ex-trekkie, I didn't miss Borg. Had I had the steering wheel, I'd have made a stop there. But I didn't want to bother that much - I saw the looks when I asked for being photographed with the Perl label. :-)

[oiskuu]: ... getlogin refers to tty owner; if you close STDIN, then getlogin returns undef. I get undef in my shell (running under X)
[tye]: Then there is a more persistent big of data similar to getlogin(). I don't believe even daemonizing drops it. So you can tell services that were started at boot time from those started by a person.
[tye]: I'll have to look into that later. getlogin() suites my current needs.
