As we all know, TIMTOWTDI stands for "There is more than one way to do it." That's the spirit of Perl. Of course, sometimes we (I) make dumb mistakes. For your enjoyment, I present you with some of mine.
I was working on some code today and stared at the following snippet for ten minutes trying to figure out why it wasn't working:
Can you say "brain cramp" boys and girls? I knew you could.
There was another time when I inexplicably did a bitwise XOR on a code reference and couldn't figure out why the reference wasn't working.
One of my favorites (from this node) is some actual working code that was hacked by a friend who was new to Perl:
Can you tell his background is Java? :)
Any other monks care to share some of their more humiliating mistakes?
