in reply to OT: Is Neo a Perl programmer?

Personally, when they were shutting down the power plant in Reloaded I actually said quite loudly, "Yes! They're using Linux and it's real!" because they were and it was. Obviously they weren't hacking Perl at the time, but surely if they're so proficient in the workings of Linux they're JAPHs, right? 'Twas a good day for cinema.

    ** SMALL SPOILER **

    Not only that, but Trinity uses Nmap to scan for available ports on a remote host, finds port 22 (ssh) and uses a program 'sshnuke' to gain remote access. Pretty cool attention to detail there even if 'sshnuke' isn't a real program.

      The directors are known for their obsessive attention to detail. One must wonder if they are so enveloped in the movie they create, they are so interested in the Matrix idea, and they are so big on entertaining their audience, are they the ones who will finally bring us decent VR someday as a delivery system for some entertainment project of theirs?

        Don't worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you'll have to ram them down people's throats.
