"Dismissal under a catch-all term as a micro-optimisation suggests that the designers were wrong."

I disagree. I interpret that to mean "use with caution". eduardo knows me. He asked me a damn good question and i answered with my opinion. No where did anybody say that the designers of Perl should be "embroiled, confused and kept in the quagmire" for adding the o modifier.

"Add this to the list of other perl features equally dismissed in this place as being non-useful ..."

Who said obfuscation is non-useful? :P

Oh, and even if you didn't directly direct the comment at me, you did so indirectly by replying directly to me. :) (one self-ascribed expert ... oooookay)

Sigh ... all of this bitterness ... i think it's PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME!!!
