Just another perl hacker somewhere near Disneyland

I have this homenode [perlmonks.org] of little consequence on Perl Monks [perlmonks.org] that you probably have no interest in whatsoever.

I also have some modules [cpan.org] on CPAN [cpan.org] some of which are marginally [cpan.org] more [cpan.org] useful [cpan.org] than others.

PowerCenter annoyances (part 1)

[ #33842 ]

Who designs these UI's anyway? I want to edit 8 fields to be all the same. Can I edit one and then cut and paste? Noooo....I have to click on a button, select something from a drop down list (that has hundreds of items in it), and then click "Ok".

I'm starting to think it might be easier to "Export Objects" as XML, edit the file, and then "Import Objects".

And then, after editing and saving, I do a "Folder Compare" against a previously identical folder, and they don't show any differences. What are we supposed to be comparing? If it can't find differences, how can I rely on it? (I know, export both folders as XML and then do a diff...I'm sure everyone will love that :-)(Update: I do now see in the docs that a Folder Compare doesn't compare objects that deeply...hmmm, should I point this out to everyone who's relying on some things to be identical, or allow them to live in blissful ignorance?)

(update: and I won't even go into the utter pointlessness and uselessness of the whole tool...other than having a pretty GUI to make the PHB's go ooh and ahhh)
