>> Bye bye the entire Unix family of line oriented text processing apps:-(
>Come on, This is a crock.
[Discussion about a *single* tool - Perl - from the genus "Unix familiy of line
oriented text processing apps" elided]
Since when is Perl == Unix family of line oriented text processing apps?
The world is littered with s/w tools that have line length
limits. These tools are *blown* by WS-less XML.
Throw out that grep, that text editor, that fgets(), that diff,sort,uniq utility
There all busted for XML use.
"Crock". I'll add that to my collection of spicy ripostes I have had
accumulates over the course of this thread.:-)
Time to end.
If nothing else, David's five paragraphs have been born from this.
I suggest they should be mandatory reading for anyone approaching
It is clear that I see a problem that others don't.
Thus the odds are I am wrong.
I hope so.
