Hmm. Is that just a difficult (and incorrect) way of being a human being...?
Ya know Randall, the more I watch you, the more I dislike you. I guess it would have been way too difficult for you to simply say something like
"A slightly shorter method would be ..., and you need to use 07777 for reason blah".
Yeah, I could see how much that would strain you. Frankly Randall, your Perl skills are fabulous, but your people skills need work.
What I'd like to know is why you didn't just offer that answer in the first place? You certainly gave a previous person his homework answer without thought, why wouldn't you have offered this up rather than what might have been an answer that this individual didn't get?
I don't claim to be some perl guru, I'm completely self-taught and haven't been doing it but sparsely for about a year, I think that's probably the case for a lot of folks here. We can't all have the experience that you have. I pick up bits and pieces here and there, and this is the only way I've ever seen to do this, besides the fact that it's always worked fine for me. The funny thing is, I probably take criticism better than anyone I've ever met, but constructive criticism is different than sarcastic criticism.
Please try to realize that we're not all guru's and some of us won't stand to be degraded.
