.... just a small question concerning a fuck-up that I witnessed two days\nago, at the University of Paris, whilst observing matriculations. A\nstudent  managed to enroll himself for two different 'options', both\ntaking place on the same day, at the same time, but in two different\nlocations. As the person doing the enrollments was using seven different\nWord for Windows documents, no one noticed the error until later.\n\nSo I decided to try to write something in Perl, to place student names and\noptions into a hash, and to 'flag' the user, if there is a conflict. Thing\nis, the more I get into it, the more it seems to me that what I really need\nis SQL, and my knowledge of that particular monstrosity, is weak to say the\nleast.\n\nSo the question is: four hundred students, each student enrolling for eight\ndifferent classes. Is this possible without SQL ?\n\n\n no, it wasn't me !
