Great meditation graff
. The OMG why would anyone want to do that response is so common that I tune out when I see it now, not just here, but everywhere. The bigger question needs to be asked, and answered. But we also need to make sure it is done in such a way as to educate the OP. Difficult? Yeah!
I see some major problems in any such forum as this:
- Seekers of Perl Wisdom often post unclearly and have not done any real search, even in the monastery before they post.
- Responders to those posts often do not read the post fully!
- Often a responder has something he wants to say and he is going to say it regardless of relevance in the particular instance.
- Seekers do not always read the answers properly either.
When I ask a question part of the interest is seeing just how many ways monks can come up with to do the same thing. I am also happy to entertain anybody's particular pet theories, but I also expect that they will explain why it should be done that way. Just that they thought of it is no good reason. As for the module loading question, well, I can understand why someone might want to do it. But is it a good idea? Well, somebody needs to educate the OP and myself alike!

Snippets of code should be wrapped in

<pre> tags. In fact, <pre>
tags should generally be avoided. If they must
be used, extreme care should be
taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
