Not specifically perl but I did steal the .sig from a perl-ish source ... 
Any suggestions?

"To understand recursion, we must first understand recursion."

"To understand recursion, we must first understand recursion."

Thereby demonstrating tail recursion quite nicely, as distinct from "GNU's
Not Unix" which demonstrates (presumably) head recursion.  Can you think 
of
an acronym or saying that demonstrates non-head, non-tail recursion?

There's a Dilbert cartoon in which Dilbert decides his project needs an
official sounding acronym.  He names it The TTP Project.  TTP stands for
The TTP Project.

What about non-DOS or non-FAT formatted floppies?
Should SR6_R01 be able to read diskettes created with slackware linux (nonfat ones)? I get an unable to read sector zero error with these. As we are on the subject of diskettes, I tried a level an IBM XDF format diskette (2mb on a 1.44mb floppy). It could only see the 393 byte section that dos could see. I am trying to find some of my 1.68 or 1.72 mb Microsoft DMF floppies to test. If Spinrite cannot use these natively, will Spinrite work if I load a device driver in dos for them? I remember such a driver existing and around here somewhere that would let you read these disks in...

nsIXPCScriptable, GetProperty and non-string, non-integer values
Hi, I'd like to have non-simple properties on an object implementing nsIXPCScriptable. Sadly, right before my getProperty hook gets called, a ID_TO_VALUE looses the detailed object information [1]. For example, I'd like foo[12.4] to give me a result for the number, not for "12.4". Or foo[{f:23}] a result for the object, and not "[object Object]" Is that possible or is that verboten by javascript spec. E4X does something similar by resolving QNames, but I'm afraid it's hooked up deep in the inside of jsinterp. Thanks Axel [1] ...

finding the right non printing non word character
Hi guys I'm trying to find a character for use in a regex pattern that is non printing and non word. I've been using \0 and \xFF as a means of marking up and splitting a string but have just found out that the regex engine thinks that they are word characters, as in being matched by \w I need a character that people won't type, that isn't a word character.

RFC: Unicode non-characters vs. non Unicode characters
A Unicode non-character is one of 66 ordinals (code points) reserved by Unicode to never be a character. A non Unicode character is a code point that is above 0x10FFFF, and Unicode says they will never ever use those. They are outside, and always will be, the Unicode standard. For more clarity, I will call them non-Unicode code points. A non-character is illegal for interchange, but one is free to use it internally in an application. Note that an application can be any number of cooperating processes, so that these code points are usable in I/O. Unicode doesn't li...
