( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I agree with the sentiments expressed here, including the use (not mentioned) of use warnings.   Basically, I think, the idea is to force as many dumb mistakes to be detected “at compile time” as possible.   When you are writing thousands of lines of code, little will typos creep in that you didtn recognize at the time.   And the time that you want to detect those isssues is, right now.   The computer has the amazing ability to detect the slightest inconsistency, and you want the computer to be doing everything in its power to assist you in that regard.   It will never encounter “Paris in the the spring” without instantly flagging the extra “the.”   But did you, while reading this, encounter every one of the five tpyos I put in here?   (If your browser underlined them for you, it doesn’t count.)

If you find that you must use a construct that flags a warning, you can use the no construct, and liberal and detailed comments, to explain exactly what you are masking-out and exactly why.   (You will not remember, even with regard to your own code.)   Then turn the feature right back on as soon as possible.

    [marto]: they still don't know there was a problem, nobody told them! :P
    [Corion]: marto: Ow! I would assume there is a cron job monitoring the free disk space and automatically opening a ticket at 90%, 95% and 100% usage...
    [Corion]: Even we had automatic emails back when we maintained the machine ourselves...
    [marto]: Corion you under estimate how lazy these admins are :P
    [Discipulus]: we too; using opsview alarms
    [marto]: the key word: outsourcing ;)
    [Corion]: marto: Yeah, feels like that ;) You could set up the cronjob that auto-creates tickets :-))
    [marto]: the ticketing system does not accept calls via email, nor has it a working API. It's tied into Active Directory for authentication and the Solaris boxes aren't on that domain
    [Corion]: The one thing I haven't figured out a solution to is how to get an edge-trigger instead of sending an email every 5 minutes if the usage is above 90%. I want one mail when it goes over 90% but no more emails as long as it stays between 90% and 95%.
    [Corion]: marto: Clever! ;)
