  • Commented on Learning project: introduction
    I am certainly interested in discussing this; your proposal seems a bit rough still. What is your background / in which environment are you planning to build something? (Is this rather a hobby-style project of yours or is it embedded...
  • Posted Using Stratopan Beta to :m)

    This morning, an innocent message landed in my mailbox:

    [Stratopan] The Beta Is Here

    Usually, advertisements go directly to .. "you-know-where", but this one was highly appreciated!

    (Read on for what I did.…

  • Commented on A Tiny Code Quiz
    ..And why does the comma operator behave like this? The Camel Book mentions "This is just like C's comma operator." I have not thought about it enough, but the current behaviour does not seem intuitive, and therefore seems to violate...
  • Commented on Comma quibbling in Perl
    Thank you for pointing to this. I have had a lot of fun playing around with it. First I thought all cases could collapse along this: - join elements with comma - replace last comma with "and" (See the Python...
  • Posted Mop for Beginners to :m)

    Here are some comments on the mop-redux regarding situations in which Perl OO (code) is thought to newcomers or to outsiders. Such situations could be explaining code to an non-Perl colleague at work for a holiday substitution or a Perl class in high school.

  • Commented on p5-mop Inside-Out object problem
    excellent! :-)...
  • Commented on p5-mop Inside-Out object problem
    Interestingly "secure" objects - as implemented by inside-out techniques have become a commodity feature to me. It is a bit like with strictures and warnings. You get the "guarantee" to not inadvertently corrupt your objects by setting a value in...
  • Commented on p5-mop, a gentle introduction
    Thank you for doing this. My first impression: I mostly like how the code looks and that we get "safe" objects. In a small example, the error messages I got were sensible and the script loaded fast. I wonder if we...
  • Commented on Proposal: elseif be an alias for elsif (as in foreach and for)
    point taken. This bit me in my "First Days of Perl". Long, long time ago.. ;-)...
  • Posted Tomato Plant vs. Nuclear Plant to :m)

    With great interest I read When "unsafety" is a Good Thing and brood over Gabor's comment regarding "inconvenience vs. danger".

    In my job, I have done a fair amount of coding these days. Mostl…

  • Posted Regexp::Debugger saved me twice today to :m)

    I just wanted to say that if you stumble with a regex try Regexp::Debugger.

    Here is how I proceeded:
    - write regex and see it not doing what I want
    - think, rewrite, think again, rising anger
    -…

  • Posted German Perl Workshop: My Day 3 to :m)

    Again a lovely bike ride to the venue, this time with some air pressure trouble in the front wheel. Then a great day with talks, chatting and again excellent food.

    And then it was already over.

    THANK YOU ORGANISERS!

  • Posted German Perl Workshop: My Day 2 to :m)

    Today I was quite busy $working. I was a bit tired, too, because a group of young and cheerful boys and girls (possible future Perl hackers?) had their small hotel party on the floor outside my room. After a short bicycle ride (numerous places of interest again) I reached the Betahaus (many…

    Thanks for the reminder; I had even forgotten that Perl Schools existed. :-S...
  • Commented on About the Grants Committee
    I am afraid to say that I would have to change countries before requesting a grant.. And that is probably not going to happen. I live in a spot too expensive at the moment.....

  • Commented on Does Perl (5) have a future?
    I love Perl, too. And I can’t quite say why. It just fits my brain, I guess. I do not want to quit. I do think that I should try to improve the community in my area, that is why...

  • Commented on Swiss Perl Workshop 2013
    @domm ;-) Yeah, we are quite excited & looking forward to it. At the moment we are talking to many people to find the best dates before Christmas 2013. Probably, as we are in Switzerland, we will need to run...

    Disclaimer: This list is no ways complete. It does not mean that I didn't like what I forgot to mention. :-)

    The Streuselkuchen. The coffee. The snacks. The drinks. THE ICECREAMS.

    How the essential things worked like charm. The Germans are winners. :-) This is no news to the fans o…

  • Nick Patch commented on Follow Ovid on twitter

    Ovid's button seems to work, although I'm already following him. On hover, it displays "You are following @OvidPerl on Twitter". The link from brian is just to his Twitter page and doesn't do anything fancy.

  • zahir.lalani commented on Does Perl (5) have a future?

    A little background - I have worked for several companies and used around 12 languages in that time - many mainstream, and some pretty obscure ones. We are currently a Java shop - BUT - i have never let go of perl since I first started 5 years ago. I have consistently proven to others that for certain things I can do a better, quicker and more cost-effective solution in perl. People still laugh at perl, but I don’t care as I will use what works best. All of our migration tools are perl, we have a super fast file transfer protocol in perl, we have a pretty heavily used web site in…

  • littlemonkperl commented on Does Perl (5) have a future?

    HI JOEL AND EVERYONE HERE. JOEL WHAT A COINCIDENCE I’M FINDING THIS ARTICLE EXACTLY A YEAR AFTER. I HAVE A QUESTION TO ASK ALL YA EXPERTS, I’M JUST A NEWBIE AND JUST BEGUN MY CAREER AS A DEVELOPER(1.5 YRS) USING PERL. I HAVE STARTED LOVING PERL.

  • Joel Berger commented on Does Perl (5) have a future?

    Hi, I don’t think anyone else will see this comment on an article posted so long ago. You might want to ask your question as a post of your own. Oh and don’t use all caps, that is considered impolite (yelling) in most online communities including this one.

  • littlemonkperl commented on Does Perl (5) have a future?

    Oh I am sorry Joel about the all caps, this was my first ever comment on any blog, thus was unaware. I will remember that henceforth. What is your opinion or view now after a year of posting the above question ?
