in reply to Data Munging with Perl

I'm currently reading this book, with a great degree of interest. For the first time I'm reading a book written by a tangible person, somehow this makes a difference. More importantly the subject is what I do everyday; sometimes it's fun, I suspect there is potential for it to be more fun.

My route through the book is the introduction, appendix B, and then sequentially through the chapters. Damian Conway's Object Oriented Perl has some scorching information hidden in chapters claiming to be rudimentary Perl, as does DMwP. Due to the self-taught nature of my Perl skills, I am ever alert for rudiments I overlooked.


  • Given a Cadburies Caramel for an hour loan of the book to the author of Brain Bench's Perl quiz. He's definitely be buying it.
  • Used the word "data sink" to a manger, who then left me to my work, (I assume it sounded more important than his task).

Brother Frankus.

[erix]: isn't a texty format handier for configs?
[Corion]: So far, I've avoided having even a user database by storing the user information in a (signed) cookie that the browser keeps for me, but as I want to be able to lock users, I need a second storage option :)
[Corion]: erix: It's needed for keeping the list of users and the list of tags associated with an image, and for keeping the images with users. I want an easy way to know if an image can be deleted, which means that it can't be referenced by any tag anymore. ...
[Corion]: SQL feels like a natural choice here :)
