The sybperl list has moved again...
As you all noticed last week the mailing list software that was being
used at NCSU wasn't able to cope with a number of problems, in
particular with error/warning messages from mail transport agents that
got re-sent out to the list.
I'm sorry this happened, and I took steps as quickly as I could to
I have therefore decided, with the help of Dennis Sherman, to move the
list to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope that this will solve the problem, and that we will be able to
concentrate on sybperl rather than on the working of the list!
FYI, the old address (email@example.com) has not been disabled yet.
Below is the confirmation message for subscribing to the list, as well
as info on how to get off...
You have been added to mailing list SYBPERL-L@trln.lib.unc.edu.
This list exists to enable discussion between users of the SybPerl
package of extensions to the Perl language, enabling access to Sybase
NOTE: if you are using mail software that is able to request confirmation
of message receipt, be *certain* that feature is turned off before you
post. Pegasus Mail is notorious for this -- it clogs up the mailing list
terribly. Repeat: Do NOT request confirmation of receipt of messages
sent to a mailing list.
All messages to this list are archived at the host site,
trln.lib.unc.edu. They may be searched or retrieved via Gopher or
retrieved via an email fileserver.
To search or retrieve the archives via Gopher, Gopher to
