++ mpeppler What amazing contributions and acheivments, I'm humbled. I see so many monks on here, that have accomplished such amazing contributions to Perl and the world of IT as a whole, and I'm simply dumb-founded. I'm still struggling just to de-bug my little scripts, lol. I hope mpeppler, that 20 years from now, I will be able to meditate on a contribution of my own, that reaches just half of your contribution and your meditation. :)

For all the monks here who have written so many wonderful books and modules, and the site administrators of Perl Monks , and any of you who have contributed inspiring sweat-lined work to our community, I believe I speak for all novice/newbie/rookie/noob/beginner out there, when I say Thank You for all the hard work you've done, to lay the path we are on now, which while y'all may have found it a winding, shadowy unknown dirt road, it's now paved with remarkable tools and techniques - you've turned it into a major 4 lane highway! So now we can go farther than we could have, without the blood, sweat and tears (and countless days coding in a basement with scarce food, no sleep, way too much coffee awaiting a nervous breakdown that you never had time to have lol) of those veterans who built this road for us.

OK, Sorry, didn't mean to go on that much of a rant, thanks though, really. All of you inquiring minds out there that paved the way for the IT explosion today.

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.
