Okay...fine...you wanna know the truth?

[ #4580 ]
I confess.

perldoc is now starting to annoy me. In fact, I won't proceed with any further hacking until I've found a fix.

I suspect it might have something to do with some changes I've made to some environment variables vs. the hardcoded values in perldoc.bat.

I'm also annoyed that the author of Geo::Weather didn't provide an interface to pass in a METAR station code (instead of assuming the user of the module would be living in a US state), but, alas, life goes on.

Grumpy? Me? Nah.

  • I apologize on behalf of my fellow American programmers and beg your indulgence, pointing to the fact that at least the UNIX timezone system seems to work around the world, from what I've heard. Maybe someday the rest of our code will, too.

    At least we finally got on the same calendar as Europe 200 years after the fact.

    • $mothra !~ "European"
      • Oh, I wasn't assuming that. I was just trying to draw a parallel with the fact that the U.S. (and Britain, I think) didn't catch up with the Gregorian calendar until a long time after it changed.
