in thread conditional self-execution

actually, __FILE__ is exactly the same thing in perl: a variable, a constant, or something else.

    exactly the same thing in perl

    When you misquote me ("something else" instead of what I actually said: "something to that effect"), that sure does seem like it's the case.

    print substr("Just another Perl hacker", 0, -2);

      __FILE__ is exactly the same thing in perl: a variable, a constant, or something else.

      Except that it cannot be interpolated (not unreasonably).
        "This string varies depending on @{[__FILE__]}."

        --
        [ e d @ h a l l e y . c c ]

        Thus, it is not "something to that effect", but it is "something else".

        print substr("Just another Perl hacker", 0, -2);
        - apotheon
        CopyWrite Chad Perrin
