More perl gripes
I hate reading the perl documentation. Perhaps having the 'man' version instead of the html version contributed to my woes. But changing over to the HTML version didn't make rtfm any easier. Oh btw they forgot to add a page for sysopen
Even if you had the HTML version it's organization is a poor cousin when you compare with the manuals for PHP or Java. That is not a universal truth though. Certain modules are really well documented and emminently readable. Even then you have to know in advance which module contains the functionality that you need.
Then I wanted to have a break (no not a Kit Kat) but as usual forgot that perl forbids you to take breaks. Yes it's a real sweatshop. You have to use the ominous sounding last instead.
