[OT] reputations [Was: Re: perlpod and perlpodspec
Message ID:

According to Sean M. Burke <>:
:Whether "print ord 233" on your terminal prints an e-acute, an ess-tsett, a
:gimel, a "tsu" katakana, a double-dagger, or whether it lasers a hole thru
:your monitor's glass, is a whole different problem.

If very many of the codes result in the 'lasers a hole...' option,
perl's reputation as a 'killer' language will have a whole
new meaning...  Perhaps we will see "Perl Programming for Corporal Punishment"
series of books from the "for Dummies" publishers...

Even if explicitly stated to the contrary, nothing in this posting Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
