  • Commented on Why you don't need File::Slurp…
    Would you benchmark this method of slurping, which is what I typically see? my $contents = do { local $/; open my $in, '<', $filename; <$in> }; Might be worth adding to
  • Commented on Perl vs Shell Scripts
    I also use Perl when I need to do anything more than the simplest command-line parsing. Getopt::Long just makes it too easy to give up....
  • Commented on Authors vs. Contributors
    You might also think about whether there is a difference between author and maintainer....
  • Commented on YAPC::NA Surveys - Please Submit Your Responses
    Do you send responses for talk evaluations to the speakers, or just lump it all into the survey reporting on
  • Commented on Exciting updates to MetaCPAN
    Thanks for adding the ability to edit author profile data through the website itself. Does that deprecate the author json files on PAUSE?...
  • Commented on Rethinking smart matching
    chorny - I have the exact same use case :) I think removing the recursion is probably not a good idea. It isn't clear to me that doing so would actually simplify things from the user's perspective or fix any...
  • Commented on Perl code refactoring

  • Commented on Mojo ppl, what have you done?!
    I wonder if CPanel can do perlbrew......
  • Commented on Ouch - Exceptions that don't hurt.

  • Commented on Non-functional perl code testing - automated code review
    My pluginbundle only collects testing regimes for which there is already a Dist::Zilla testing plugin. It is probably worth writing new plugins for some of what's mentioned here and including them. Patches welcome :D...

    About "Processing Job Output Lines":

    run some command | while read line
        process each "$line"
  • Damien "dams" Krotkine commented on Why you don't need File::Slurp&#x2026;

    I like to use this for non production code :)

    my $content = do{local(@ARGV,$/)=$filename;<>};

    I don't think it's useful to benchmark it :)
