  • believe it or not, I like having those strange words show up in an index - maybe it's how my brain works, but I find myself saying "I know what I need, it's in that code that has 'diddle' in the comments" fairly often.

    I wish our index was far better than it is, but I trusted the indexers to do their job (which is probably a thankless job that receieves far too much abuse). It wasn't until after I needed the index myself that I realized how important it would be (and how lacking ours ended up).

    To compensate, we've made the entire book searchable on our website [modperlcookbook.org], which should make it easier for folks to find what they want (like where "diddle" shows up [modperlcookbook.org]. I wish more books had that capability.
