  • Commented on More tests and more traits for p5-MOP
    Thanks for the update. Why not call the trait builder instead of built_by? That is what everyone who uses Moose is used to....
  • Posted Using App::p Command Line Magic to Parse Vimperator History to ironcamel

    I use a firefox plugin named vimperator which provides vim-like keybindings for firefox. I have it configured it to store 5000 command history entries, which is considerably more than the d…

  • Commented on Perl tutorials suck (and cause serious damage)
    Thanks for bringing attention to this issue. One solution could be creating/finding a solid tutorial and placing it prominently at perldoc.perl.org. This is the approach that has successfully been taken with the python tutorial. Perl is a much more complex...
  • Commented on Exploratory one-liners with less typing
    Marc Fontani created a gist based on this, adding some more features https://gist.github.com/1042504. I forked his gist and made https://gist.github.com/1240122. Thanks for posting this cool idea. I had fun hacking on it....
  • Commented on Managing my shell setup
    Thanks for the post. I like this idea a lot. One nitpick, I think this is not necessary: test -f "$x" || continue Shouldn't the test -x suffice?...
  • Commented on Loving 5.14
    Thanks Ovid. That is very exciting to look forward to. Also, this presentation by Jesse at OSCON gives a good overview of this subject. He describes strategies for making Perl smaller, as you stated. He even makes a nod to...
  • Commented on Loving 5.14
    I always thought what was preventing Perl on the jvm was the whole "only Perl can parse Perl" thing. How does trimming out modules solve that?...
  • Commented on The alioth shootout Computer Language Benchmarks Game
    It's hard to tell what actually changed by looking at the diff on github. I think it would have been better if you did not modify the whitespace on each line....
  • Commented on What should be core in Perl 5.16?
    Is it JSON or JSON::PP? Meaning in your code, will you be able to just use JSON? My understanding was that it was JSON::PP only....
  • Commented on What should be core in Perl 5.16?
    List::MoreUtils...
  • Commented on What should be core in Perl 5.16?

  • Commented on What should be core in Perl 5.16?

  • Commented on Subclassing Tricky Non-Moose Classes: Don't Do It
    You may be discussing this in your next article, but have you found MooseX::NonMoose to be lacking?...
  • Commented on Perl's "readability"
    Sorry for the extra newlines in my last post. I put my code example inside 'pre' tags, and it seems to render it with an extra newline for each line. If someone knows a better way to post code samples,...
  • Commented on Perl's "readability"
    Most of the people who say perl is unreadable either never learned perl or have never seen modern perl. The flexibility and power of perl that makes it possible to write obfuscated code also makes it possible to write code...
  • Commented on To die or to croak, that is the question
    Interestingly, vim's default perl syntax highlighting will highlight croak as if it was a built-in function. http://p3rl.org/Devel::SimpleTrace is a nice module to consider....
  • Commented on The "Irrefutable Wave" Myth
    1) Web programming is at its core processing a stream of text and generating a stream of text (a lot of programming actually boils down to that). Perl excels at this task. 2) Dancer....
  • Commented on 100% Test Coverage?
    I'm surprised no one has mentioned this already. 100% code coverage means you have written extremely fragile tests and your tests are highly coupled to your implementation. I would consider that as a bad thing. Lately, I have been taking...
  • Commented on Agile Project Software Recommendations?
    We've tried various different systems. The current one we are using is Pivotal Tracker and I'm really happy with it. One neat thing about it is it provides a nice rest api that you can call in your svn/git hooks....
  • Commented on 100% Test Coverage?
    Here is a question for you. Which is more important: The cleaner and less error prone code that is possible with MooseX::Declare. Or the code coverage reports provided by Devel::Cover. The problem is that Devel::Cover will not work on code...
  • Commented on Separation of Concerns
    I have to agree that inline pod is awful. I wish people would stop doing that....
  • Commented on Automating builds
    So when do you think you'll be ready to fess up? And more importantly, when will you get it into CPAN so we can start using it?...
