If "Programming is Combat " , then I must ask the question..."Who or what is the enemy?"

Is it "unruly entropy-laden electrons", disruptions in the "stream of correct information", or greedy bosses trying to squeeze productivity out of you?

We (especially in the US) are being overwhelmed with the "military mentality", but is it reality?

It seems ( to me anyways) that reality is learning to live "in harmony" with the earth and the cosmos; and the "real battle" is within ourselves as we resist the "natural harmony" of things.

Or maybe its like Pogo said "We have met the enemy, and he is us".

So how about looking at programming as "making love".....we learn tricks to bring the code to "electronic orgasm" ( i.e. It RUNS :-) )

    [shmem]: perl -e 'warn "test$/", ^@^ '
    [Eily]: well, at least it's right about warn doing the same thing as die :)
    [shmem]: same with undef as last element
    [msh210]: oh, good point. It's the best kind of correct
    [shmem]: msh210: but I'd not call it a lie outright. That's when you do know the truth.
    [msh210]: I don't have sendmail (I'm on MS Windows), so does one of you think you can report the bug?
    [shmem]: msh210: 'tis about time to tell the sad truth to perl5porters - via perlbug
    [msh210]: probably whoever wrote that actually knows the truth
    [shmem]: msh210: you can save the perlbug text in a file and send that via your mail agent of choice
    [msh210]: hm, okay, I'll try, thanks
