  • Olivier Mengué (dolmen) commented on Another (silly) idea: autocorrect in shell (bash) tab completion

    You should try fish which has many interactive features that you may like.

  • Steven Haryanto commented on Another (silly) idea: autocorrect in shell (bash) tab completion

    UPDATE: bash does replace to-be-completed word with the common prefix of all possible completion, so autocorrect is already possible. Yay!

    For example, if word is "adu" and completion is ["audrey", "audry"], bash *will* replace the "adu" with "audr". If word is "drectory" and completion is ["Directory"], bash will replace it with "Directory" as the sole completion.

    Yup, fish is nice. Creating programmable completion Perl module for fish is on my todo list. :)

  • Ovid commented on mop problem 5 - Role and C3 searching is not always necessary

    Roles are not multiple inheritance at all. In multiple inheritance, you're overloading class responsibility with code reuse and you introduce ordering problems (which C3 mitigates but does not solve).

    Roles leave responsibility to the classes, but handle the code reuse. Further, unlike inheritance, they don't have ordering issues, ambiguities become compile-time failures, and they can be mixed and matched in any order without breaking (well, that's actually traits; Moose roles miss a few objectives here, but only in corner cases). I strongly suggest you read up more about ro…

    C3 will not be part of the MOP, it is part of the core of Perl already, it will be possible for a user of the MOP to use C3 just as it is possible for a user to do that with regular Perl OO.

    Roles are not multiple inheritance and in the MOP will not be implemented with multiple inheritance. You should do some reading up on Roles and how they work, I fear you do not understand them well enough.
