What indeed *is* happening here?   It's bad enough that all these
reposted bug reports have apparent source <Richard.Foley@m.dasa.de>,
since it's generally impossible to reply to the original poster without
rummaging in the bug database to find the real message details.

But this one doesn't even have the bug ID (which should be 20000607.009).
What gives?

(I also notice that in the bug database, the bug number displays as
  ` ";'">20000607.009 ', but perhaps that's an oddity of my browser (Lynx)
)

Nope, I was careful to send them on with a 'Reply-To:
original_poster@address.etc' set.

This was a manual aberation :-(

I'm trying to be as backwards compatible as possible to keep everybody happy.

Printing options for "txt" Emails: No "print selection", "print pages X to Y" ??
Hi. NTS told me, that for TEXT only emails it is not possible, to get the same "print..." dialog, as it's available for HTML formatted email: - Printing selected text - Printing a page range I was advised, to place an enhancement request (done). It's hard to believe, that there really isn't some work around to print just parts of TEXT emails, or a page range?? Regards, Rudi.

What should 'my $str $x; $x ~= "a"' return?
Well, the subject line already contains my question. I wrote some tests about scalar autovivification. The short sequence: my Str $x; $x ~= 'a'; produces 'Stra' in pugs, because $x contains a Str proto object, that stringifies to the type name. From my understanding of the synopsis that's correct, but rather unintuitive. So, what should $x be after these two statements? -- Moritz Lenz http://moritz.faui2k3.org/ | http://perl-6.de/ Moritz (>): > Well, the subject line already contains my question.

"x = " vs. "var x = "
Just a quick q: why does the expression "var x = 5" return "undefined"? The expression "x = 5" returns 5, as I would expect. Inside jsshell "var x = 5" doesn't print a value (I assume it's suppressing undefined results).

What's with "~/" and NOT "~/" ?
In trying to deplay test projects to my provider (GoDaddy) I'm finding a consistent barfness with the form of reference that I read as "in this directory, this file"  or "~/filename.filetype". I am having to consistently strip the "~/" to make it work.Is there a way to strip off this type of reference through a preference? In the past, I've been led to believe that "filename.filetype" when in the same directory was just FINE as that -- no need for this "~/".Hints, direction, etc. welcomed and appreciated in advance ... mahalos .....

Replace(txt,"'","''") in code-behind
i'm creating a file named client.vb using my wordpad. I'm using this as a code-behind sort of thing. The problem is I want to remove the ' from my strings so that i can put them in SQL statements. The Replace doesn't work, is there any other way to this. thanks. Can you show me the code sample you have for the string.Replace() method? That should work for you. You should instead use Sql Parameters to compile and send your query to the db. One of the many benefits of doing so is that you don't need to worry about the single quotes.-- daver True.
