Alright, that's cool, but why didn't you post that to begin with? I immediately caught what you meant by "ethical", and I immediately saw what the program did. I can't possibly fathom why the node approver didn't see that.

Anything suspected to be malicious does NOT go over well here. In the olden days, a thread like this would have been nuked - that means it wouldn't even go under the normal review process to be deleted, with a record of it remaining. The admins would make it just *disappear*. Its happened to me before, a few years ago over what I thought was some innocent networking code. (This node wasn't deleted under the normal review process because I was pretty sarcastic in my consideration - I often forget that people here don't get sarcasm. It kind of sucks for you, the rep would have probably wouldn't have gone under a -5 if it had been reaped.

Anyways, the quality of the code isn't too shabby. Lurk a bit, and don't try to imply that you're some sort of cracker next time, ok? :)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <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 intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
