Yes, it's called Unix.  Things work.  Fancy that.  Bet you
wish you could say as much.

You seem to have an inferrnal system.  Doesn't jive with my 
experience nor those of others, though.  Thank goodness.

I'm not ready to trust your judgment on this matter.   You don't
even seem to understand the ntature of the PERL_POLLUTE problem.
And you think IDE bloatware a feature not a curse.  Shows what
you know.

Could have fooled me:

    % grep -ic 'david grove' /usr/local/src/perl/Changes
    0

You're just slapping a lot of well-meaning and hard-working people
in the face, including Larry who made a statement about all this
yesterday and which you continue to ignore.

I should hardly be surprised if Sarathy says "up yours"", throws
up his hands in disgust over ungrateful pricks who ignorantly
criticize without contributing, and walks out that door forever.

Go read what Larry wrote.
