Perl aims to be OS agnostic but was born on Unix and is heavily borrowing from Unix tools like bash, sed and awk plus wrapping many C functions from that OS.

In case of conflicting terminology we fall back to basic Unix terms, like "directory" instead of "folder"

The docs on the other hand are expected to mention platform issues, at least by pointing to perlport

flock is an anti-example, that's why I started this meditation .

> Interesting...I always use CRON ...

8.6 million google hits for "cron Windows"

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
