Poor paco. I wonder what happened to /h(im|er)/? I suppose we'll never know. Did paco turn to VBScript? Did paco become a Java programmer? Is paco selling hot dogs on a street corner somewhere?
I suppose that paco asked a reasonable enough question, though by today's standards, perhaps /s?he/ would be flamed for not even trying to post code. I'm going to give paco a ++ for this node, since this is one of the first, if not the first question to be asked here.
Wouldn't it be interesting if, at some point in the distant future, paco gave up selling hot dogs, returned to Perl, and found /h(im|er)/self a Saint because everyone came by and gave paco's lonely little node a ++?
Update: Don't waste your votes on this node. Vote for paco!
