  • Yeah, wouldn't suggest my actual implementation to anyone. Telling people to swap bytes around depending on the CPU in their server doesn't belong in install instructions anywhere ;)

    CPAN modules would be interesting and do-able but it would break the 100 line limit I set for myself. Maybe in a larger version. The current protection model, banishing most ops with 'use ops', just wouldn't work. You couldn't do the first step. I think buu has his bot forking then chrooting itself and setting ulimits and a bunch of other stuff, doing computations in that sandbox, and then returing the results over the one filehandle it has open to the outside world. Entire user scripts could be run that way, chroot'ed into a place where modules are installed. Hmm.
