in reply to I've missed you guys

I noticed you in the Chatterbox this morning (sorry I didn't say hello—I only had a few minutes to spare), and was thinking that it was good to see you after a long absence. Welcome back; why don't you toss in a question or two? :-)

    Thanks -- I'll post a question when the need arises, but right now I'm finishing up a couple of large pieces of code and taking part in a massive system installation. No material for questions or even a meaty meditation.

    My somewhat longer term plan is to start building a list of tools and techniques for doing what I call forensic software development; reviving software that works, but has no 'owner', learning what it does, and eventually re-writing the code with up-to-date practices (perltidy, perlcritic, logging and so forth).

      Wow—that sounds both extremely useful for the user and extremely difficult for the developer. Certainly I've wished for tools like that before; I hope that we'll hear more about them as they develop.
