  • Commented on The Perl Community - a mixed bag of sometimes intollerance and sometimes fantastic help
    The Perl channels on IRC have been dominated by one super-active and energetic and brilliant and obnoxious individual for some time. The experience you describe has been the standard for a decade, and before that, it was already the standard...
  • Commented on CPAN6 Is Here
    Hi, can you please explain how a CPAN user shall tell the difference between a Perl module and a "Perl6" module? What prevents a Perl user from installing -- or even downloading -- a "Perl6" module from CPAN?...
  • Posted I want my, I want my Kwa-li-tee to 1nickt

    If you publish code to CPAN, you've probably noticed the steady improvement in its entire ecosystem over the last couple of years. ++Neil Bowers and ++the meta::cpan core hackers in particular have laboured tirelessly to improve…

  • Commented on Log::Any - Now With Structured Logging
    Hi, the context feature seems like it might be quite useful. (I'm not sure I see the value of passing structured data since you can already do that with debugf(), infof(), etc...) I wonder if there's any chance of getting...

  • preaction commented on Log::Any - Now With Structured Logging

    The difference between what happens with debug(..., \%href) and debugf(...,\%href) is the formatter callback and what the Adapter object receives: If the adapter implements a specific method (structured), it gets the raw arguments unedited so that it can use its own method of structured logging (Log4perl's MDC for example). In no case with debug() will the formatter get called. The rules for the formatting set of functions (debugf() and friends) have not changed: Adapters get the string after Log::Any has done all of its…

    Thanks for releasing the changes as a trial! For your information: I've migrated my $work's internal Log::Any::Adapter to use structured logging and the context hash - and things are working fine!

    I have a horrible feeling it was me that you felt was telling you that you didn't know what you were doing, and that really wasn't the goal.

    Given all of the code you showed, the behaviour you were describing ... simply isn't something perl does. Which means, basically, you'd ended up in a position of looking for your car keys under the streetlamp rather than where you'd dropped them, which is a common failure mode of everybody when debugging.

    I believe the last thing I said before you left was "honestly I still think you're just confused about the data" and ... if I was seei…

  • trwww commented on The Perl Community - a mixed bag of sometimes intollerance and sometimes fantastic help

    First I'd like to preface my comment with a point that I'm not trying to negate your experience. I'm so happy that you are contributing. Perl needs (more, even) people like you so the ecosystem thrives. Thank you, sincerely, for your experience and contribution. And if you feel like you need to share content like this, all the better.

    I would like to say that I also appreciate the way mst contributes to perl. I can't speak for him, but whenever I'm on social media looking for help or ideas, he almost always one of the people that provides feedback, and I have to say that the WAY he c…
