“Thank you, all, for once-again clarifying your by-now ... (have you actually bothered to notice this?) ... “who really cares anymore anyway,“ completely inbred, completely political ... positions?
I already understand that there are a double-handful of you, who, upon this web-site about which an ever-shrinking number of individuals actually cares about anyway, continue to determinedly maintain a vendetta about a specific Monk. (So far as I can tell, “at the exclusion of each and every other such participant here.”)
But let’s look at the source code, shall we?
Do you see the very-obvious bug in the code? Obviously you do. There is only one point in time when $count will be exactly equal to 2, and anyone could spot the flaw immediately.
Therefore, I, in entirely good faith, spelled out the basics of an alternative algorithm which not only would actually work, but which would be future-maintainable. (As a manager right now of more than a dozen people who would individually qualify as “Perl Monks,” I happen to think that my point-of-view has certain weight. Not to mention having written computer software for now just over four decades and counting ... how old are you?)
Nevertheless, I daresay that you, in your still-determined pursuit of your still-pointless vendettas from, by now, “a full decade ago,” never once bothered to consider a single thing that I had actually said to the OP, except for the fact that sundialsvc4 had been the one to post it. In so doing, you frankly completely-voided your assumed position of authority with regards to what the OP actually had to say – this being the entire reason that (s)he came here in the first place.
So, do you not think that it is well past the appointed time(!) to “just let bygones be bygones?” I rather think that most of the c-u-s-t-o-m-e-r-s which this website somehow still attracts would agree with me. To them, I daresay, you are today just making noise.
