It's around a corner. But most people go mad trying to comprehend the corner.

    I am reminded of the Dutch phrase "Om de hoek", which means around the corner, but sometimes gets miss-translated as "On the corner".

    The phrase also has some of the same connotations of the English phrase "Round the bend".

    Update: Thanks aukjan for pointing out my typo.

      I am reminded of the Dutch phrase "Om der hoek",

      That is "Om de hoek" ... 'der' is tooooo German ;-)

        "Om de hoek" ... 'der' is tooooo German ;-)

        ,,Um die Ecke'' in German.

        ,,jemanden um die Ecke bringen'' - literally: to escort somebody round the corner - means to kill that somebody though.

        Cheers, Sören

[Corion]: usemodperl: If your "audience" runs old, locked-down computers that can connect to the outside world, they shouldn't install random stuff from CPAN. Especially, as many modules on CPAN don't work with 5.005_004 anymore.
[usemodperl]: downloading modules is wrong? oh dear...
[usemodperl]: just answer my question without judging me or my technique, if that's possible around here anymore, sheesh
[Corion]: usemodperl: You should be well aware of the ways to make your approach still work, even if it is to set up your own proxy that strips HTTPS. It shouldn't be hard for somebody with your acumen.
[Corion]: Unless you just want to vent your frustration about how others don't provide for your whims. That's sometimes necessary. There, there.
[usemodperl]: so to answer my question, no http at cpan, and all rationalized too, thanks
[marto]: this 'safe space' thing you have going on seems just like wanting to whine without anyone replying
[Corion]: usemodperl: Naah, if you scroll back, you'll find several approaches that still work. Maybe a prewrapped solution like CPAN::Mini is what you want. Or maybe App::FatPacker. But you don't seem to want to listen. That's OK.
[Corion]: There, there. It'll all be better.
[marto]: usemodperl "so to answer my question, no http at cpan," doesn't tie up with what you said "I can find cpan mirrors on http"

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
