Although it seems obvious to most perlmonks,
use strict; use warnings;
are often missing from programs that I see. Perl newbies need to know that using this modules will help create clean portable code faster than without them.

In the bigger picture I think perl users (indeed all programmers) need to better educate themselves on network and system security. Learn how the code you write can affect others. The server is not a island. What you do cause others to have a very bad day.

    [Corion]: Yay. Traditional finance situation averted. Bonds can be quoted in amounts (1_000_000 EUR) or per unit (1 unit). And a traditional error is to trade 2_000_000 piece when you meant to trade 2_000_000 EUR.
    [Corion]: (one of my scripts simply catches high amounts and I phone people making that trade, ideally before the payment is due)
    [Corion]: The sad thing is that my script sits at the end of the pipeline and can only look at the payments due today or tomorrow basically, while there are many more systems further up in the pipeline
    [GotToBTru]: better late than never, I guess
    [Corion]: GotToBTru: Sure - there is a long and sad story of many frantic cleanups that led us to implement this notification ;)
