  • Cool. You were probably thinking of BPM Inspector [blacktree.com], from the awesome dude(s) who brought us Quicksilver.

    • Yeah, that's the one. I was looking at some others that didn't do what I wanted. Thanks! But mine's smaller. :-) I could make mine set the value, too, with less than 10 more lines of code. But I don't think I will, unless someone wants me to, since I don't care about that.
  • When did that sneak into perl? (It's basically while(!something)... but very pretty.)
    • It's been there a "while". HA!

      Seriously, as long as I can remember. I dunno.
    • It's been there from the beginning. From the perl 1.0 man page:

      If the word while is replaced by the word until, the sense of the test is reversed, but the conditional is still tested before the first iteration.
