( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Just a suggestion for a new section wherein snippets of code are posted by the monks with one small error, (hopefully an error that is common in practice). The educational challenge is for the other monks to spot and explain the subtle programming defect. After a while (hours, days ?) the original monk who posted the snippet posts the corrected code. The idea is to get the monks quick at spotting common mistakes so that they may avoid the Illusions of Maya in their everyday Perl meditations.

    [oiskuu]: So, how long did it take you to grow up?
    [oiskuu]: Have you ever had your temperature taken from the other end?
    [marto]: I read about a case where people were at a launderette, or whatever they're called in the US, and as a joke, put their toddler in with the washing, then closed the door
    [Your Mother]: (Work in progress.)
    [marto]: unaware that the model in question started the cycle automatically, provided the money/token had already been provided
    [marto]: CCTV footage of the joke gone wrong is used in educational materials now IIRC
    [ambrus]: oiskuu: definitely not silly. have you ever tried to remove cat hair or dog hair from clothes? for many clothes, it's pretty hard, and running the washing machine with a cat inside would get the hair on everything.
    [oiskuu]: YM, I'm interested in your questions... maybe start a a thread at polls.
    [oiskuu]: marto, it ended badly? I doubt the power is easy to plug at those installations?
    [marto]: oiskuu sadly yes
