  • About: Using Perl to solve problems since 1995
  • Posted Breathing life into the (Emacs) cperl-mode to haj

    If you are an Emacs user, you might know or even use cperl-mode. I am using it, more or less since my first days with Perl. Back then, newsgroups were a thing, and Ilya Zakharevich recommended it occasionally. In older times cperl-mode was shipped with Perl, today it is part of Emacs.

  • Commented on Can't post a comment here -- dunno why
    I found that "Preview" always kills my sessions. So, in order to preview, I copy the textarea to the clipboard, and then "Preview". If I like it, I log in again, paste from the clipboard and immediately "Submit"....
  • Commented on Signatures vs. Methods
    While I can imagine several scenarios where multiple inheritance would come in handy, method resolution based on arity seems to be a bad idea in all of them. If all three classes in question belong to the same project and...
  • Commented on TPF: Perl deserves better. Please do better.
    I haven't been to the Perl Conference and am only reading about that event through third party articles, some of which allegedly have been altered since their first publication. I don't think I'll ever find out what has happened there....
  • Commented on Improving Perl debugger variable output
    Thanks for sharing this! I have adopted your .perldb, and I like it a lot. With a one line change it also works in an Emacs perldb session (yes, I'm guilty of not only using the debugger, but also Emacs):...
  • Commented on The Future of Perl 5
    I'd give Salvador Fandiño's suggestion for exception handling in the core a slightly higher priority than an object system. The benefit of an object system in the core would be a significantly reduced threshold for beginners to do OO Perl,...

    Possibly the software should be called 'Removable Type'

    Previewing doesn’t kill the session. It’s just that the submit action on the preview page somehow fails to find or load the session correctly. But with the form on the article page, submitting works. So all you need to do is, after previewing, hit the back button before doing anything else. There is no need to keep signing back in over and over.

    Obviously, do copy the comment to the clipboard before trying to submit, just in case. Most of the time this step is unnecessary – but on rare occasions, going back from the preview page seems to have eaten my comment. (I’m not sure i…

    Test -- after having logged out, cleared blogs.perl.org cookies -- not using the Preview button first.

    Thanks, Aristotle!

    It works (using the browser's back button to return to the original page, then using the Submit button underneath the Leave a Comment field).

    Signing out and clearing cookies before logging back in didn't solve the problem (I still got a "your session has expired" when using the Submit button on the preview page).
