in reply to Backticks and Pattern Matching.

When you use backticks and you don't chomp the results the returned value will include a newline.

You must account for this in your strict comparison if you're not going to chomp (but please use eq, otherwise you're not comparing you are setting).

[aitap]: usemodperl: maybe it's you who has changed
[marto]: demonstrably yes, since you claim to want a safe space, your definition for which seems to be a place where you can name call, make things up or otherwise post without being challenged
[usemodperl]: no that's not it at all, meant safe for perl people, to not be hounded by weirdos obsessed with things like... whitespace :-)
[choroba]: I'm definitely not obsessed with whitespace, I rate myself among Perl people, and I haven't noticed any hounding
[marto]: "no it's not that"...."weirdos "...
[marto]: List EXE_FILES installed by CPAN so a couple of people suggest that your code looks obfuscated. I'd have to ageree, from the perspective of those who can't follow all of that one liner, it doesn't read well
Veltro is a weirdo, obsessed with whitespace
[marto]: to use the word "obsession" when so few people have said so little about it is grasping at staws
marto wishes tye was around, he's so much better at this sort of thing
