in reply to Should I leave behind beautiful code or readable code?

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." For those who live as professional programmers, beauty as a consuming passion that disappears in a few days and leave nothing but a sense of emptyness is not a top priority, I think. Beauty needs a more pragmatic approach, something that makes it more close to code that works and that can be changed without hair-pulling. It is not that fugacity that dazzles, it is more like that brightness that stands. In this case, pride should be on getting things permanent and not in such a way that gives other people headache.

After all, maybe you should try something like this

sub MySub { ...some stuff... return map { split(/ /,$_,2) } map { uc } @somearray; }
Not that big deal, but more everlasting as a good memory.

[Corion]: usemodperl: Naah, you're just being unreasonable. It's not hard to download https URLs, and we've shown you ways to avoid downloading at all, and ways to keep downloading via http possible. You reject both.
[choroba]: Also, try asking at IRC
[usemodperl]: corion baby you have done nothing of the sort
[usemodperl]: asking how to download from cpan with core perl via http is unreasonable???
[Corion]: usemodperl: No, asking is not unreasonable. Insisting that it must always keep working for you is unreasonable.
[Corion]: But again, you haven't explained why your users need to download, or why they need to download via http, or why you can't host the SSL-stripper yourself.
[choroba]: Wait a second. Does shutting down search.cpan.org mean the cpan clients can no longer use their urllist?
[usemodperl]: i'm under no obligation to explain myself mommy, and i'm not insisting, just asking a simple question
[Veltro]: So, I'm confused on the matter actually. There are locked-down computers, but they need updates. How does that work? Isn't that contradictary?
[usemodperl]: EXACTLY
