in thread 'better mousetrap': how to perform timed event

Add this to the list of other perl features equally dismissed in this place as being non-useful
This is an unforunate truth, but another unforunate truth is that while all those features serve a purpose, and it serve it well, they can be easily mis-used and are therefore discouraged (said discouragement usually occurs when the constructs are mis-used). It's the same with almost any feature in perl (and any language for that matter), it's no good to sprinkle it about the code because it's there you have to have an understanding of what the construct does and where it is appropriate to use it.
