in reply to Measure temperature outside in Perl
Now that you've *asked*, I *suppose* we'll have to tell you The Secret. It's all part of the Conspiracy (but There Is No Conspiracy, of course.)
# Perl itself actually measures the computer's temperature, # subtracts CPU temp, extrapolates the location of the closest # window or door, catches the temp whenever it was last opened, # and uses a heterogenous mean deteriorating sliding semi- # automated average to compute the current temp +-0.0001 degrees. # All part of DWIM, of course. my $leonard_of_quirm_var = perl->secret_built-in_outside-the-room-temp +erature-measuring-device(); print $leonard_of_quirm_var;
Don't tell anyone else, 'K?
