After reading all of the above and being a friend of deprecated, I have decided to post a small rant.

Judging by the knee-jerk reactions (early on) and the more recent follow-ups, I am inclined to say that maybe we're not all fully reading what we're responding too. Possibly not listening to our fellow monks' rants.

I am a system administrator, by profession. I primarily work with unix based machines, but I also deal with other platforms as well. What is said is true, there is more then one way to do it. Many system's admins take different approaches, often times what I would consider lazy approaches, and some take approaches that are much to difficult and time consuming to maintain.

Now mix in (dare I say) whiny programmers who each have their own style of writing, who have their own preconcieved ideas about "the way things should be" and at their last job, "It was always like that". Are you seeing my point?

So lets understand both sides of the coin, my job is to keep that server running 24/7 downtime is NOT an option for me. Just because perl is still 5.6.0 even though you requested 5.6.1, doesnt mean I am not interested :-)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
