So basically what you are saying is that you don't have to prove anything that you say cause all people have to do is type the right combination of words into google and browse around testing that code for a few hours to see the same thing?

But what would you rather I do with the limited time I have here...

  • Write one detailed treatise about why the code at the head of this thread is broken and dangerous?
  • Write five warning postings, leaving others to fill in the blanks if needed?
I'd rather do the latter, because it innoculates five different diseases instead of just one. Of course, what I'd really rather do is...
  • Write two or three good real postings moving the community forward.
But as long as people post crap like the beginning of this thread, I don't get to do that.

It's fundamentally unethical of me to allow bad memes to stand, so as long as I see them, it's my responsibility to point them out. Now, as long as bad memes keep getting posted in this unmoderated forum, my destiny is predetermined. So, either moderate the forum, or let me post-moderate it as I have.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
