tilly:
<Nice post. Thank you.
We can learn here not only be a better perl coders, but also better humans.
You reminded me the great masters of Tao (or buddhism), who did not feel urgent need to win by destroying opponent, but just teaching him a lesson. I believe Musashi will consider you a great master, who can, as Lao Tze teaches, win war without fighting.

Please stop it. You are good, but if you are really good and feel safe about it, you do not need to prove your point by be-heading less skilled wariors. If you do, you are a bully, not a samurai (at least as I remember them from movie 7 samurai). Please read excellent tillys posting Vice to virtue and back again and please realize that sometimes hubris is a vice, and being humble is a virtue. Surely it is true in this case.
Please stay with our community, but remember, this is perl monastery, not a perl dojo.

All others:
If you did not read tilly's posting Vice to virtue and back again, do yourself a favor and do it now.

To make errors is human. But to make million errors per second, you need a computer.
