  • Commented on Debuging method for perl Complex data structures
    To say it more clear that echowuhao: Data::Printer is actually a "better" alternative if you just need to have nice printouts of data with coloring to guid your eye and some smart auto detection. Data::Dumper is good when you need...
  • Commented on A new blogs.perl.org or die trying
    Because some of the problems you mentioned I actually was always just happy when I finally managed to get some plain ascii chars displayed on the frontpage. I completely dropped any undertaking of formatting or adding images or whatever. :-)...
  • Commented on Seeking collaborators: native puppet cpanm provider
    You have a friend: http://questhub.io/realm/perl/quest/526bd9f77feb4abe0c00009b...
  • Commented on POD Web View
    Loving it!! Two things: 1) The different styles look quite the same? 2) The markup of indented stuff (code) like e.g. often used in the SYNOPSIS does not really look like code I'm going to use this defenitely. Thanks!...
  • Commented on eBooks ... for Science!
    Just a Note: You can write in POD and turn it into a ebook with EBook::MOBI (closed source mobi file for the kindle) The module just covers the basics (adding images and a toc), no special features. You could also...
  • Commented on Galileo CMS
    I consider using it for a small site...
  • Commented on [off-topic] I'm cycling 170km around Cornwall for local hospices
    ...and hospice charity nerdery too :-)...
  • Commented on A convention for Changes files
    ...this actually hinders me finishing my quest :-P http://questhub.io/realm/perl/quest/51f81b0acc80951f7c000009...
  • Commented on A convention for Changes files
    The current spec does not accept the default date format from dzil. This is IMHO quite a big problem. Either from dzil $, or the spec (or its implementation). I opened an issue: https://github.com/bricas/cpan-changes/issues/17...
  • Posted Two new Modules: Manage JiffyBox VM and Convert TAP-Archive to Boris Däppen

    I like to announce two modules I created recently during a "Continuous Integration" project at a Perl-Company near Stuttgart in Germany.

  • Commented on New feature: automatic post truncation
    Thank you very much too...
  • Commented on Kegler spam
    What kind of button ore you talking about? (The off-Button on my PC?)...
  • Commented on Kegler spam
    @confuseAcat: At least I am massively disturbed by his super long posts. Full ack from me to educated_foo. (Besides I am missing a "like" button ever since here. I think chimerix does too) I would vote for a default way...
  • Commented on Recruiters suck, and why I became one.
    Really a nice post. I am going totally with you about the "heart breaking" thing. I myself was one year in Cameroon on a technical position. It is really difficult... One thing I'd like to mention here. Please don't take...
  • Commented on Being nice to colleagues with git pre-commit hooks
    Thx a lot for the tip with "die" and "bail". Didn't know about those... I think they will help me a lot in a current project....
  • Commented on Perl and self flagellation...
    "But why should I use File::Find et al. if a simple grep { ... } readdir() does the job?" Because if your code is full of this stuff, it really isn't funny for others (or your older self, as Damian...
  • Commented on Pinto Users, Please Stand Up!
    We are considering to integrate it in a company in Germany for "Continuous Integration" (together with Tapper). But it is still to early to "stand up" and not yet sure if and how it will become reality....
  • Commented on Slideshows in Vroom: So Noted
    Need to bookmark this and try at home when weather is bad! Thanks for sharing!...
  • Commented on Using Stratopan To Build ... Stratopan
    He wanted to run it on a server (for a reason probably), encountered problems, and did the most professional thing that can be done in such a situation to continue on what ever he was working before. Since it is...
  • Commented on chef pinto cookbook
    Thank you a lot. This might help me in the future. I will have a look at that. But seems like one first needs to understand about this Chef stuff :-P...
  • Commented on Reviewing web frameworks
    If you could make a direct link to http://neilb.org/reviews/ on your new blog, it would help to find it. I was just surprised that it was not there and needed to go over tag-search (reviews) and then find the link...
  • Commented on Interview with Jeffrey Thalhammer
    I like it! Super interesting so see more than just ASCII from Perl-Authors...
  • Commented on Swiss Perl Workshop has a Logo
    This is the "aletschgletscher" in the background, isn't it? I like it :-)...
  • Commented on Perl 7
    This superb "background" information should be in the main blog post instead of the comments ;-) It quite made me understanding what your point is....
  • Commented on Versioning Developer Releases
    Just found this link (by googling "cpan developer release") http://www.cpan.org/modules/04pause.html#developerreleases It is actually all explained there. Thank god I know now. It happened so often to me that I uploaded a release and found out days later it was broken....
  • Commented on deb.perl.it - bridging CPAN and Debian → step2
    My module does have dependencies but unlike in your given example, the install instructions don't suggest any "apt-get install" but only the cpan command: http://deb.perl.it/debian/cpan-deb/#q=EBook%3A%3AMOBI But (for example) File::Temp should be installed by apt in this case I would think....
  • Commented on Perlybook updates
    Surprising but nice interface for the email. I'm sure this will help Kindle users a lot....
  • Commented on Happy Birthday Perl
    Nice!...
  • Commented on Visually graphing module dependencies
    Cool! I just tried it and got some warnings... No clue why this is but it seems to be your intention? The picture rendered nicely anyways. Just thought I'll report that since it is uncommon to have warnings for a...
  • Commented on Recently while developing...
    And don't even ask how I mistakenly typed this thing on a swiss keyboard!...
