|Randal||just now made the connetion|
|integral||Randal: they needed one for their special effects|
|woland_||thanks buu, what would have been the best way of learning that myself? i'm relying on following the SEE ALSO pages in man perlintro|
|Randal||the same people who brought me Dr Who (thank you!)|
|inferno285||is it possible detect if I can write to a socket in perl|
|rindolf||I was told it was never popular, but mathematicians, physicists, etc. loved it.|
|rindolf||For its tensors and stuff.|
|Randal||as in, "can open and write"|
or "won't block"?
|integral||well, not just that|
|Randal||or something in between?|
|buu||woland_: er, perldoc -f split.. perldoc perlfunc..|
|inferno285||can write, as in the client shutdown 2|
|buu||inferno285: Detect the error|
|integral||rindolf: The purpose of FORTRAN ("Formula Translator") was to get the mathmos doing the programming themselves|
|Randal||I suspect you merely try writing|
and if that fails, look at $!
|inferno285||kool..I try that|
|buu||inferno285: There's no way to tell, I believe, without attempting a connection.|
|integral||(Sadly, they didn't realise that they had the design skills of ferrets on crack)|
That's offensive to ferrets...
integral: I've seen bad programmers of almost every education.
integral: and most code out there sucks.
But I think working and functional code is better than modular and clean code.
I mean modular and clean code that does nothing useful.
|daMaestro||Any recommendations for a templating engine I can use from mod_perl2?|
|perlygatekeeper||well there's sucks and then there's "Sucks stale beer through Britney's used panties"|
|integral||But mathematicians are specially trained to construct very, very complicated things and then to intentionally tidy them up until you can't find out how they were constructed or conceived just by looking at them|
|rindolf||daMaestro: Template Toolkit.|
|LeoNerd||TT is good|
|daMaestro||ok, I was looking at that|
|perlbot||HTML::Template, Template Toolkit, Text::Template, Petal, ClearSilver...|
