Programming question for the audience: I'm gaining familiarity with Perl's syntax and structures but have yet to actually start writing in it, so maybe this a dumb question: Is it possible to distribute a Perl application without the source code? Or is the source code the application itself, since it's not a compiled language?
Put another way, does anybody sell Perl applications? And do they simply require an agreement that the source code won't be used beyond the licensed use or given away to others who haven't paid? I'm curious.
Since I had a few issues left coming to me of the now-defunct Byte Magazine, and since CMP has decided not to relaunch Byte as a print publication, the remainder of the subscription will be filled with issues of Windows Magazine. Um, gee. Just what I wanted.
The unfettered free market is the answer to everything! Honest! And that's what we're trying for in America! Honest!
Salon asks computing 'names' about their personal plans for Y2K. Many interesting differences:
There, now nobody needs to ask any more computing people what they're doing for Y2K and waste trees on it. Right?
For the first time, somebody presents an argument for frames that I'll buy. It's an old article (May 1998), but it's new to me:
The Apple Store's design is an example of a not-so-bad frameset, since it's part of a task-centered application rather than a source of information.
Dang, now I'll probably have to learn how to do them someday. I hate frames...
