Yeah, awful language this Perl. Makes things much too easy.

I hope our bosses never find out that things take a fraction of the time
they would with other languages :-)

All opinions are my own, not my employer's.
If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

 Go me!  Tie::Hash::Transactional is written.  It implements a hash which
 you can checkpoint and rollback.

Thats weird, I just wrote something that did that very thing the other day
.. the transactional bit was just a side affect of having a tied hash that
could tell which keys which had been updated so I could cheat big time
with the internal data hash which keeps all the stuff for the billing
system here ...
