  • Commented on Perl6 module namespace
    The root namespace in Perl 6 module land is not the same as Perl 5 due to `auth`: `use HTTP:ver(v1.0):auth('cpan:GMANE')` This means your module's name does not have to be predetermined by the content storages (cpan, or any 3rd party...

  • Posted Assigning a user defined function at runtime to ugexe

    I recently wrote my first XS module, and found myself wanting to dynamically load it in the parent module if possible. The next problem was what if the user wants to change back to the pure Perl version? And then, what if the user wants to use Other::Module's similar_function?

    Oh, I've forgotten about that. Thanks!

  • Graham Knop commented on Travis-CI and latest version of Perl 5

    Adding a 'latest stable' target to travis-perl helpers isn't something that had occurred to me, but if you think it would be worthwhile, I could definitely do so. And I would certainly welcome any other feedback on it too.

  • Gábor Szabó - גאבור סבו commented on Travis-CI and latest version of Perl 5

    I am not sure if that is really useful. I just noticed that I have forgotten to add 5.22 to my projects. So I was wondering if a "latest stable" might solve this for me. But I am not really sure if this is a good idea. I'd still need to remember to add the "one before the latest" when a new major version is released.

    Maybe what I wanted is some way to get notified if my Travis-CI configuration is not using the latest stable so I can manually add it.

  • Ether commented on Travis-CI and latest version of Perl 5

    "latest stable" would be really handy, but my primary usecase would be "test on all major perl versions between X and Y", usually from 5.6 or 5.8 up to latest stable (5.22), as well as blead (but the latest 5.23.x is almost always good enough).

  • brian d foy commented on Perl6 module namespace

    Sometimes the taxonomy makes sense, and sometimes it's just annoying. That someone understands what the module does and how it relates to other modules should be the most important thing. A Chess module for games of Chess uses the most used meaning of the word and it probably doesn't have to relate to other modules (like HTTP::Request and HTTP::Response are related to each other, or how HTPP::Cookies::Mozilla relates to HTTP::Cookies).

    I wouldn't want to see WebFramework::RouteBased::Mojolicious, for instance.
