  • Posted smart-matching and sub funhouse to rodrigolive

    Bad timing: now that smart-matching is under scrutiny, I've started to have fun writing Perl like this:

    use signatures;
    use Path::Class;
    file( 'file.txt' ) ~~ sub ($f) {
       say $f->basename;
  • Commented on Can't choose CPAN namespace
    I'd suggest you focus on getting an early release out first: what's the cornerstone functionality that ties all of your modules together? Which one of your modules could be uploaded on its own? Can you break your modules down into...
  • Commented on YAPC::EU::2005 Proceedings
    Great doc! You're right, some of it is still current, and even when it isn't, it makes for good reading anyway. I specially liked the optimization part by Nick Clark....
  • Posted OTRS on Plack to rodrigolive

  • Posted CPAN source syntax highlighting to rodrigolive

    I've just updated a syntax highlighter bookmarklet I wrote a while back so that it now supports Chrome and Safari, besides Firefox.

    Another working day in AIX... This time trying to compile a nginx server to run on top of Catalyst.

    $ ./configure --prefix=/opt/nginx --user=nginx--group=nginx \

  • Vyacheslav Matyukhin commented on Can't choose CPAN namespace

    This code is definitely a framework, so I want to keep it in one namespace, to emphasize common interface.

    I think i'll go with Tube::*.
    "Your program is a series of tubes" will make a good tagline :)
