in reply to Rules-based Perl?

The difference is imperative based programming vs functional programming. C/C++/perl/java are imperative, prolog miranda ASL (lisp at a push) (scheme at a push) are functional or rule based as you call them. Do web searches for functional and you will find NUFF info

I must confess I could never get my head around functional programming languages although I can certainly see the benifits.

A quick web search turns up the following links

Hope these links are of use to you.

[erix]: 1=0 is as short as TOP :)
[erix]: "code of someone that died" -- kinda nice if your code stops working too
[erix]: hard to implement, hmm
[Corion]: erix: Well, they also seem to have changed the server, or some software, or whatever, and seem to be in the process of changing the DB schema from having the "username" as primary key to something else.
[Corion]: Far too many things being done at once, or maybe only now has it become apparent that nobody knows that piece of software anymore
[marto]: good morning all
[Corion]: I consider having an abstract key as userid in your system good, because the "real" company-wide (or even larger) user id will likely not fit your criteria well
[Corion]: A good morning marto!
