Whoa! By far the most hostile reply that I've ever gotten on PerlMonks.

What was hostile about it? I certainly didn't mean for it to be so.

And you needn't misinterpret my thoughts as a judgment on how you decide to spend your time. It's your time.

What I was calling into question was your rationale. It would be unfortunate if someone rather less experienced read your well-written node and took away the notion that rolling your own is a good thing to do when you are writing a one-off, especially when exactly the opposite would probably be better advice.

Maybe I should add that I also thought I'd learn something

Another fair reason.

what about my code?

I haven't looked at it. I'd really just use the two line fix I've already mentioned. ;-)
