JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [perlmonks.org], and here [javajunkies.org] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [blogspot.com] and my other blog [blogspot.com]. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

Error Prone

[ #8963 ]
My last run of Matriarch, I actually attempted to load suspicious emails into the data structure that's supposed to hold them for perusal. (It only holds the subject, date, from, to, and filename. That way, when the index is selected, it checks the filename, scans that file for the body, and then loads the body up.)

I'm a damn fool, of course, because this resulted in nearly a 20 meg file of error messages. Sigh.

It occurred to me that I could probably use a little filter just to sort through all the errors...and then I remembered what I said to myself, last night at Borders, looking at that copy of Mastering Regular Expressions (second edition, of course):

"I don't need hardcore regular expressions. Regular expressions are a little scary sometimes, and I'm fairly comfortable with where I am with them."

If stupidity were a crime, I'd be in lockup right now.

So, off I go to start fixing errors, one by one, until they're all gone.
