  • Commented on playing with Cairo
    Oh, I wish! I don't know PDL well enough, so to my limited knowledge there's no such thing in PDL that would do the trick. OTOH with Prima::Cairo you actually can make PDL::G::P cairo-based. The module is 1.00 and has...
  • Posted playing with Cairo to Dmitry Karasik

    I was recently reading a brilliant post A first-person engine in 265 lines by Hunter Loftis, and instantly wanted to port it to Perl. After doing half…

    Hi David, I'm sending you a PM because even though I agree that it is as good a forum as anything else in general, this good forum doesn't notify me when I get comments. Or at least I can't find...
  • Commented on how I learned to plot a mandelbrot set
    @Book cool! :) @David thank you! Btw I was always meant to ask you but kept forgetting - PDL::Drawing/Graphics/Prima don't include image management routines, and image plotting examples are rather slow because they do it rectangle-wise using pdl_bars .. did...
  • Posted how I learned to plot a mandelbrot set to Dmitry Karasik

    When I first met fractals in the school, I thought that they were if not magic, then something very close to it. The concept of a fractal dimension was something I couldn't react to logically, but only emotionally, basically, with a "wow" and…

  • Commented on A Tiny Code Quiz
    The explanation for 4 is slightly wrong, it should be, quote perldoc scalar, "Evaluates all but the last element in void context and returning the final element evaluated in scalar context" But it's curious how perl allows passing more than...
  • Commented on Data::Dumper::GUI
    Toby, Steven: there is expanding with mouse, it seems that both of you have Prima compiled without GIF support somehow and that's why it's disable. If Prima has it, outline widget shows small extra [+] and [-] icons next to...
  • Commented on Data::Dumper::GUI
    Hi Toby, I think this is a very cool app! If you need help with base Prima api, TextView or whatever else please don't hesitate to ask, I'll be glad to help. As for the fixed font problem, I'll see...
  • Posted twinkle twinkle catalyst to Dmitry Karasik

    I'm developing under Catalyst and am using the Catalyst test server that is running on my local machine and is reloading every time I'm saving changes to the source tree. This is a cool feature, but I have to wait in front of the browser until the application is loaded full and can answer http…

  • Commented on Re: What if we could drop archives into @INC?
    @Chad Thanks for the effort, I remember I tried that thing with @INC some years ago, when it wasn't established yet, and didn't work the way I hoped. It's great to know that it is solid now....
  • Commented on Re: What if we could drop archives into @INC?
    @Steffen: that's interesting! is this the branch you're referring to? http://svn.openfoundry.org/par/branches/fastio/ I can't find anything related there, sorry...
  • Posted Re: What if we could drop archives into @INC? to Dmitry Karasik

    An article written by brian d foy What if we could drop archives into @INC? got me thinking. Indeed, I've been burned myself by PAR, which is a great instrument, but I don't like that it…

  • Commented on On defined(@array) and defined(%hash)
    My 5 cents here: I personally couldn't make any use of discussions on p5p, and my very subjective view is that Reini couldn't either, therefore the rant. Imagine you're trying to get your point through, cannot, feel ignored, and venting...
  • Commented on Your Perl-driven cyborgs can soon recognize objects
    Awesome! Any chance to get it working together with PDL?...
  • Commented on What if we could drop archives into @INC?
    I've deployed standalone perl apps and missed the feature greatly back then. It was rather annoying and tedious to hand-roll a self-unpacking perl directory with all modules and what not. I've tried PAR, it can make a one-contains-all exe file,...
  • Commented on Those TIFF files
    You're welcome to try the latest Prima on these files use Prima; Prima::Image->load('a.tif')->save('a.jpg'); or even send the worst ones to me -- i'm keeping a small collection of tiff pecularities ;)...
  • Posted Those TIFF files to Dmitry Karasik

    While releasing and compiling Prima 1.33 for 5 different perls, I'm taking a moment to send a couple of warm ones towards the TIFF specification. Prima originally was written to be used in (among other) software for microscopy recordings, and…

  • Posted udp_server with IO::Lambda to Dmitry Karasik

    I'm turning again to my module IO::Lambda, which I think, doesn't get the resonance it could have. I've seen AnyEvent's tcp_server, which is great and easy to use, and was reluctant to add one to IO::Lambda, because it's so easy.…

  • Posted ASUS EPU-6 utility hacked with Win32::GuiTest to Dmitry Karasik

    Some time ago I've bought a windows desktop with ASUS EPU6 because I wanted my desktop to be extra quiet. It is quiet indeed, but it's done by a special GUI utility, where one should compromise first between noise and CPU speed. That utility runs on startup, remembers its last setting, and…

  • Brent Laabs commented on Suspending efforts on my #riba2016 crowdfunding campaign, looking forward to my own Xmas

    I think if I had seen this explanation, rather than what I saw on the campaign page, I would have tried to get a donation from my company. Much of that was about was about DBIC and SQL::Abstract, which are great products that we should be using -- but since we aren't using them to great degree, it was hard for me to make a case. So I just donated a bit personally.

    But reducing dependency chains is a worthy goal, and one that should improve everyone's life. And one I wish you had made a bigger effort to promote that aspect of your proposal on the campaign page. Because I'm more of…

    I think if I had seen this explanation...

    Arriving at this sort of clarity took me several years, left alone being able to put it into words. I feel in the end it's for the best, less tension on all sides is not to be underestimated.

    perhaps this would have worked better with a truly long fundraiser time.

    Hmmm... longer than 3 months? That's... an interesting thought for whoever attempts to do this next.

    You really only have 35kUSD in debt?

    Hehe. Well, I didn't get a chance at higher ed. so that probably helped ;P

  • john napiorkowski commented on Suspending efforts on my #riba2016 crowdfunding campaign, looking forward to my own Xmas

    I would add some general thoughts on fundraising, if we are talking about that, and maybe to some degree trying to write a lessons learned here that would be of value to anyone else that tried in the future. I worked for some non profits in the past that always did big fundraising so I do have some hopefully useful information:

    1) Fundraising is like running a political campaign, you are always doing it. You need to treat it like a big marketing project. Always have your 'elevator pitch' ready. Its a marathon, not a sprint.

    2) Rich people and companies don't contribute be…

  • Wendy commented on Suspending efforts on my #riba2016 crowdfunding campaign, looking forward to my own Xmas

    I look back on many meetings with you, formal, informal, and otherwise. Most of the meetings taught me that you are very smart, and often not very diplomatic. Not being diplomatic does not mean that you weren't right. I am not a good coder, and you are, so it's not up to me to decide how right you were on proposals to change code. I do marketing in a shitty way, and I'm not the greatest diplomat of this world, so it's not up to me to decide how right you were on proposals to change policy or marketing. I do know it has almost always a pleasure working together with you, and I do thank…
