in reply to Re^3: Modern Perl: The Book: The Draft
in thread Modern Perl: The Book: The Draft
In fact, jethro's take is far more plausible than the view behind my dissent.
From the times of two postings on the topic by an Anonymonk, the content of the direct reply to jethro's node seems to be a retraction of Re^2: Modern Perl: The Book: The Draft... but the notion of age() as a mutator does fit the fact that aging cheese changes (mutates) its character. :-)
Thus, a re-dissent on that tangential matter: IMO, 6 months is singularly inadequate for sharp! cheddar; far better 12 ...or even, as some of our Wisconsinites pride themselves on doing, for 12 years or more. But, that re-dissent is posited on the notion that the methods used by those in America's dairyland as determined by empirical testing.
++ again, jethro
