in reply to I feel a motto coming on...

"Make Perl yours, without taking it away from others."

I think your motto goes along (to a certain extent) with "Making easy things easy & hard things possible". The easiest of problems can be made difficult, or the hardest of problems can be made easy (as in your code ex. japhy). It's totally up to the programmer; only he/she can decide to make a straight-forward solution, or create one that requires a mastery of the language. Your motto goes well with PM and sites like it, because it is their goal to make the Q&A forum as painless and easy for it's users as possible. I see that to an extent your motto applies to another of the mottos of Perl: "There's more than one way to do it", or, the programmer must chose how much he/she really wants to confuse the reader of his/her code.

Your motto is a pretty accurate representation of Q&A geared sites like PM. It conveys that Perl allows it's users a 'freedom of choice' to make the solutions to their problems easy, or difficult, in the never ending journey to obtain eliteness through producing code that only you (the programmer) understand.

I like your motto (in case I hadn't ever made that clear; it is early and my coherence level is still low because of lack of sleep, so if something does not make sense just remember, it is everyone's fault but mine!).

[vedagiri89]: i have searched many forum...not getting resolutions
[vedagiri89]: centos
[Corion]: vedagiri89: Either what choroba said, or maybe you misspelled some module name (on Windows), like use Strict; or something like that.
[vedagiri89]: @choroba, what to do for that
[Corion]: Ah, you are not on Windows, so disregard my opinion.
[vedagiri89]: in centos, how to fix this.
[choroba]: You have to find out why it happened. Was there an OS update?
[vedagiri89]: that is what i can't getting solution

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
