 Yes. Definitely. Just you. None of the rest of us has noticed anything
 odd at all.

2001-03-14 Thread Mark Fowler

 Leo Lapworth was trying to debug something with Devel::DProf and
 couldn't understand why BEGIN was called more than once. Robert Price
 and Mark Fowler pointed out that 'use Module LIST' is exactly
 equivalent to 'BEGIN { require Module; import Module LIST; }', so the
 module was being use-d in multiple places, which is fine:
 http://www.mail-archive.com/london-pm%40lists.dircon.co.uk/msg02667.html

Did I?  It's not you know.  You forgot this bit of the perldoc -f use as
well:

   If you don't want your namespace altered,
   explicitly supply an empty list:

   use Module ();

   That is exactly equivalent to

   BEGIN { require Module }

i.e. that use Module and use Module() are ne.

Later.

Mark.

 Content-type: matter-transport/beer-stream

That's not right.  MIMEs do type/format (e.g. image/gif.)  So it'd more
likely be:

Content-type: beer/guinness
