in thread Perl secrets

I see only one problem here, it's with the Or, you can just bang on it a bit yourself until you find out that it breaks (or doesn't) to your satisfaction. part.

When the realization that it breaks comes with a hacked computer or a bunch of corrupted files, the price might be a little steep.

Is there anywhere a list of "The things you will never guess but that will get you fired anyway"? Things that will cause problems only under circomstances that are difficult to produce in a test environment. Things like flock's, or Taint mode come to my mind but I am sure there are some more out there, and I am scared ;--)

    Well I tend to be good at finding bugs, so you can always use me as a windshield. :-)

    Seriously, if such a list was readily producable, it would likely be readily fixable, and therefore already fixed. Most of what is out there that can go wrong will be found by someone banging into it. But while that does happen, I have been so far happy with how well Perl stands up to some serious abuse.
