Not surprised that you were cowardly enough to be anonymous! First off I'm not responsible for the conditions that I work under - I don't expect special treatment - nor do I have to justify them to anyone, least of all a coward! I will do so only in an attempt to reduce your level of ignorance. Perl is installed by our Support team under root and humble (look it up in the dictionary) programmers don't have root access! It's nothing personal just the way my employers have done things! Is this the best way to do things? Probably not but I'm not arrogant (or ignorant ) enough to think that the world revolves round my arse! Support, apparently due to space constraints, have NOT added the perldoc or perlfunc functions so much as I might want I can't access them (nor amazingly enough can anyone else, phew that's a relief , for a moment you had me convinced that I was the only moron employed here!) Webb access is once again a policy decision that affects all the programmers here and is not (sorry to puncture another of your sadly erroneous attempted barbs) a restriction placed specifically on me. Whether my employers are moronic or not I would suggest you don't know enough to form an accurate opinion. Even if they were -
a) What's that got to do with you?
b) How is that my fault?
c) What has that to do with answering my question?
Am I supposed to quit because my employers conditions of employment cause some nameless coward to be offended? As the application that I've to write a Perl wrapper round is written in UNIX I can't even begin to comprehend the fury that the phrase "written in UNIX" seems to have generated, do you have some deep seated neurosis about UNIX scripts or maybe UNIX scripting is only for the little people beneath you? (In case your arrogance feels the need to be released again -I'm not actually interested in a reply from you!) So in closing -did you get anything right in your attempt to be offensive? If you were hoping to cause offense - you failed as the only emotion I feel for cowards is pity. Jaded assumptions apart it was clearly a well thought out response though.
PS I'm guessing from your overall tone that you are still in great pain after being neutered - my sympathies but I don't think you'll miss them!
