Re: [shawnhcorey] Problem with executing shell commands in perl

Hi shawn,


Quote
One thing I dislike about Perl is that it uses the same syntax to mean two different things.


Heh. One of my standard questions when interviewing applicants for Perl programmer positions is, "What do curly braces ('{}') mean in Perl?" There are, in fact, 5 meanings.

UPDATE: Anyone who gets more than 3 is an immediate hire!

Cheers,

Larry
