  • E. Choroba commented on Which edges cases could perl shed to make it easier to parse?

    Indirect object notation and Package'Separator should be gone. I would be sad for most of the other proposed changes.

The machine has had regular security and system updates since… (almost) none of which I’ve ever noticed, despite my scripts being hit regularly by cronjobs from my end. (The ones I noticed were for reasons unrelated to the CGI scripts.…

    If you absolutely cannot maintain your scripts (ie want them to live forever unmaintained)

    It’s not that I can. It goes back to the question you posed: “what does [maintaining such a script to keep it running] gain for the user?” My scripts have served my needs with no changes whatsoever. What would I have gained from maintaining them?

    You can mitigate this by ensuring that your dependencies don’t move
