  • davehodg commented on Perl and Me, Part 7: The Most Powerful Weapon Which You Can Use to Change the World

    Well a move has been in discussion for a very long time. The problem is that while all of four us running b.p.o want to get off it post haste if possible, none of us has the slack to make it a priority project. And now that the site has been brought back online, the urgency is already lessening again. As long as the site is at least limping along, any big change will be slow going.

    Next is the "termexpr", which allows anything down to assignment. After that is the "listexpr", which allows anything down to the comma.

    Lastly there is the "fullexpr", which would even accept the low-precedence boolean operators (e.g. and and or).

    In a standard function call,…
