The tinterweb is a slang word for the internet. It it used by those people
who are actually geeks and spend all their time on the internet but who
want to look cool and non-geeky.

Thanks - I don't think that copes though, the regexp mentioned in the
doc'n is the same regexp I'm already using.

I have emailed the author of the package though.

Thanks again.

Well, that's your problem. Why didn't you look at the readily available
documentation on your own harddrive first?

Maybe the one to which Brian quoted the _exact_ title?
The one that pops up if you query the FAQ for any of the words 'decode' or
'create' or 'encoding'?

Seriously people, is it any wonder that Perl is so niche!

With "helpers" like those in this group, there's no wonder that PHP's
so popular - the beginning Perler must take one look at this group of
self-appointed a**holes and run away shrieking!

To quote "Flower", the skunk in Bambi "If ya aint got nothing nice to
say, don't say nothing at all"

Why do you pill*cks even bother replying - oh wait, that's rhetorical
so I'll leave off the question mark and supply the answer myself...
because you have a pent-up need to show how superior you are (without
actually showing any real superior knowledge of the subject - NONE of
you actually came up with the answer, did you?).

Get a life you pr*cks! This newsgroup posting is yet another that will
be indexed by the search engines and give zero information to the


(And don't bother with your "clever" replies, I won't be coming back to
read them)
