in reply to (Perl)Monks, Zen, Caffeine and Hacker Habits

Sometimes, it just depends on perspective. Is caffeine the focus of attention or is perl?
If it's caffeine, then perl is (or can be) a tool to get more caffeine.
If it's perl, then caffeine is (or can be) a tool to get more perl.

"Should we dare to call ourselves PerlMonks if we're just fascinated by caffeine and we've lost our sense of respect towards it and ourselves as well?"


For some reason it really bothers me to see a saint avoiding a perl module to use a system call...

Update:Thanks to japhy for being a good sport!

    I could not get the module to work for me at all. It seems to be WinNT-aimed, and the documentation for it was poor, and I had no idea what arguments to send the functions. As it turns out, I've abandoned the project entirely, since it was just for "fun", and someone else has produced a far better program that I already use. No offense taken.
