( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Snippets sent to me by a co-worker. Source unknown. My apologies in advance if the last two are offensive.

Perl:

$shakespeare =~ /^bb|[^b]{2}/;

Un*x:

rm -fr /bin/laden chmod a+x /bin/laden

Any others?

Cheers,
Ovid

Update: Yes, I already know that mandog had sumbitted this node for consideration to be deleted because he felt that this node wasn't enough about Perl to be worth keeping here. There is nothing wrong with that. Let me restate that:

mandog was right to do what he did.

Now, I'm not saying that I want this node reaped or that it should be reaped. All I'm saying is that, IMHO, mandog did what he thought was appropriate. He 'voted his conscience', so to speak. If more of us did what we felt was the right thing, the world would really, really be a better place. While I don't think this node should be reaped, I have absolutely no problem with mandog considering it.

Side note: if you search some of my past posts, I recognize that I post a fair amount of off-topic material. Admittedly, these are Meditations about project management, database issues, and whatnot -- and therefore at least peripherally of interest to many of us. However, it may be the case that some people cut me some slack because of my XP. If you think the posts shouldn't be here, feel free to consider them, downvote them, or make replies telling me that I'm outta line. If you feel that they're out of place, I'll respect that. Otherwise, I'll keep posting 'em.

By the way, I'm having carburetor troubles. Can anyone help? ;)

Update 2: Just for the record, I don't know who removed my node from consideration, but it wasn't I.
