  • Commented on On prototyping in public ...
    Great news, but would you reconsider Ron's comment from over a year ago, and do this fulltime with funding? Given the high level of interest in this, I'm sure you'd be able to get crowdsourced funding to cover a very...

  • Commented on Looking at DBI Part 6, More Data Fetching
    I'd not seen the way of using placeholders like that before, rather than plain '?'. But why 'use vars' - seems like too much pre 5.6 chicanery. Some thing else to be deprecated in perl I think.......
  • Commented on perl live coding
    Genius! A bit of voiceover might have helped as I was squinting to keep up, but that was inspirational....
  • Commented on What's wrong with CPAN?
    One thing is that module owners should be able and encouraged to deprecate their own modules. There are quite a few examples where a module is flavour of the month for a while, and then superseded by a subtly better...

    Did marpa really use 8GB of memory in that paper, or did I missread table 3?...
  • Commented on Experienced Perl Developer sought by Lokku Ltd (Nestoria)
    Well, if you're going to post a perl jobs postings where it shouldn't go, then I guess we're allowed to discuss it? Why does perl in Central London pay so little? And this is a senior role! (involves mentoring) Outside...

    Thanks for the update Stevan!

    I was wondering just yesterday what the status was of your attempt to add a mop to the Perl 5 core. The only question I have is--what's the earliest version of Perl that could possibly have it? I was thinking that 5.22 would be it, but now it seems like we may have to wait a while longer. True?

    And congratulations on your new job at Booking! I hope it is fun and rewarding!

    perlpilot, honestly I have no idea what version it will ultimately be in, and I am not really wanting to speculate given the rocky path so far. I had hopes for 5.20, which obviously won't happen (though we will get sub signatures, hooray!).

    If I were considering porting a module to mop, what would be the best way of going about that?

  • Stevan Little commented on On prototyping in public ...

    Timm, you can use the prototype on CPAN for now - https://metacpan.org/release/STEVAN/mop-0.03-TRIAL - the guts will likely change, but the surface syntax and semantics should stay mostly the same.

    This is so cool!
