And if perl had a 'cat' command (or if usenet had XP), you'd probably get downvoted for a UUOC post too :-) Really though, I don't understand people defending bad programming practices, and I'm always open to good advice. I almost always learn something from your posts, and your replies to my posts have almost always fallen into one of three categories:
  • Hey! I wish I thought of that!
  • Hey! I didn't know that!
  • Oops! why did I do that :-)

So please keep it up, and don't sweat the downvotes; its human nature, which for some reason reminds me of the Simpson's episode where the family is hooked up to electrodes and they repeatedly give each other shocks in a parody(re-enactment?) of that psychology experiment...
