in reply to Monk Levels

Forgive my ignorance, but does not the ultimate level of zen enligtenment suggest $saint = 0;?

That reminds me of this koan I heard about a zen master, his disciple, and a rabbi...

    you are very correct. At the time of writting a think i was using the "return true on success" logic of perl to imply 1 meant successful enlightenment ... but i think 0 might be better ;)
    Thus spake the Master Programmer:
    "When you have learned to snatch the error code from the trap frame, it will be time for you to leave."
    -- The Tao of Programming
      $saint = "0 but true"; #Everybody wins

      --
      perl -pe "s/\b;([st])/'\1/mg"

    hmmm, $saint = $0; wouldn't be wrong, either
