in reply to When do we change our replies?

We could bitch that we don't do "C for loops"

Never, that would be bitchy and lame

...but where does it end?

If you never start with such noise, you don't have to worry about the end :) Elaborate on style only when the OP ask for it (or its absolutely critical), present it as better options (because that is what they are, choices) but don't be a bully about it, otherwise don't scare away the newbies.

[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, that is understandable! The two examples in File::Find don't make sense to me on a quick glance.
[marioroy]: LA if the find worked from Unix command line, or does it not. Likely a quoting issue inside Perl qx.
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, the find worked fine at the command line.
[marioroy]: LA, yeah. than there's no reason why it cannot work inside qx. But chatting is hard in PM. I cannot see the code now.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: sometimes a quick glance isn't enough.
