Perl VI

:The Saga Continues

  • Current state
    • Virtual Incarnation
    • Very Interesting
  • Design goals
    • Verbosity Inessential
    • Versatility Incorporated
    • Vanquished Irregularity
  • (hopefully) Final outcome
    • Vastly Improved.
    • Versatile, Indulgent.
    • Voraciously inclusive.

Examine what is said, not who speaks.
1) When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
2) The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible
3) Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Arthur C. Clarke.

    [marto]: yep :)
    [Discipulus]: being her marto, can you explain what "Par for the course I'm afraid." means?
    Discipulus here..
    [marto]: "what is normal or expected in any given circumstances."
    [marto]: better: "If a type of behaviour, event, or situation is par for the course, it is not good but it is normal or as you would expect"
    [Discipulus]: thanks i was unable to decide where to split the sentece
    [marto]: FWIW search.cpan rarely has issues, see http://noc.perl. org for a route to report problems
    [oakbox]: thanks, marto.
    [marto]: there was a period where search.cpan had some frequent outages for (IIRC) a couple of weeks. I've not had any problems since, until today.
    [marto]: this was about 16 months ago maybe. the noc team are, in my experience, very responsive to reports of issues, so please raise the issue after checking known problems/outages
