in reply to poll ideas quest 2015

After finding the answer to my question, i keep on looking because there might be:

  • Another answer
  • A better answer
  • A more complete answer
  • A golfed answer
  • A pros/cons list of the answers
  • Usage details
  • Something funny
  • Something wrong (that must be corrected)
  • I'm just curious to see what people attempted
  • If it works, i stop looking
  • Other

Inspired by this thread.

Not really similar to this idea.

    • A golfed answer
    • An answer using a hitherto unknown CPAN module to solve the problem in an unseen and cool manner
    • A link to an answer at xkcd
    • A stunning answer solving the problem in a (though not mentioned as being of some such in the OP) RDBMS, LDAP, XML, web technology, perl data language, crypto or similar context
    • A wrong answer that needs corrective measures real urgently
    • Trolls trolling further down the thread
    • A shiny perl6 solution

      Added "Wrong answer". To me, the others seem to be covered in the options already provided.

      Specifically, Perl6, CPAN, and stunning, are either "A better answer" or "Another answer." But, updated "Another Answer" with a link to TMTOWTDI. xkcd:// is included in "Something funny." Trolls is included in "Something funny" or the now included "Something wrong". I am ashamed to say i do not know what "A golfed answer" means. Though, i seem to vaguely recall the term.

      I'm not against any of the options though. They're all fine. Perhaps you can justify them a little, or otherwise make them different? :)
