Python would have to be Satanism. What other language is associated with a snake?
Where I grew up, some Christians used snakes in their worship services: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snake_handling

    Snakes figure prominently in many religions. See snake worship and snake god, for example(s).

    Snake handling

    Yeah, but that's not snake worship. And those snakes -- like the serpent in the Garden of Eden -- are venomous vipers, not constrictors like the python.

    On the other hand, "python" itself is named for an ancient Greek deity, Pytho.

    Bottom line: "Python would have to be Satanism" is a rather silly thing to say. And "What other language is associated with a snake?" is an utter non sequitur.

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

[Cosmic37]: thank you Lotus I understand
[Cosmic37]: now I have tried another blunder - can anyone explain why I am such a dunderhead?
[Cosmic37]: if ( $line =~ /$mydt/ ) { print $line; }
[Cosmic37]: I try to match successive date times stored in variable $mydt
[Cosmic37]: I guess it is searching for the string "$mydt"
[Corion]: Indeed cool, erix ;)
[Cosmic37]: rather than the value of $mydt which is a date time strong such as 2016-01-01 12:30:56
[Corion]: Cosmic37: No, but maybe $mydt doesn't contain what you think it does, or it contains characters that are special in a regular expression? Try if( $line =~ /\Q$mydt\E/) { ... for a literal match
[Cosmic37]: I mean string grrr
[Corion]: Maybe add an else branch in which you print what the values of $line and $mydt are?
