  • About: Just another Windows Perl hacker.
  • Commented on Better interviews and better hiring
    I'm surprised that companies weren't hiring this way in the first place....
  • Commented on Why is your Perl site asking me to log in with another site's credentials?
    OK, fair enough. But when I click on the "Sign in with Twitter" button, Twitter's web site tells me that when log in that your site will be about to: * Read Tweets from your timeline. * See who you...
  • Commented on Modules in core: who cares?
    It's a non-issue. Many Linux distros are already putting CGI.pm into a separate package. For example, I have to run "yum install perl-CGI" on RHEL and CentOS to install CGI.pm....
  • Commented on Dance with the one that brung ya
    The only difference to the end-user by removing CGI.pm from the core is that the small number of people that use it will need to type "cpan CGI" before they first use it. After that it'll be like it was...
  • Commented on Dance with the one that brung ya
    No, we don't have to promote something else. Those other things can be installed from CPAN with a single command. We don't need to put everything in the core....
  • Posted Why is your Perl site asking me to log in with another site's credentials? to Matt Perry

    Yesterday I came across another Perl-related site, called PrePAN, that asks me to log in with some other site's login information. I've seen this before on MetaCPAN and Play Perl and it makes…

  • Commented on Type::Tiny - not just for attributes
    Some of your example code is cut off on the right side. Can you fix that please?...
  • Commented on Thought for the day: Perl 5 is English; Perl 6 is Esperanto.
    Speaking of CPAN, what's the solution for a Perl 6 CPAN? I found an old Stack Overflow question that directed me to http://modules.perl6.org/. Is this still the alternative at the moment or can Perl 6 module authors use the same...
  • Commented on I <3 play-perl
    If I understand correctly, this is an implementation of software that is like IdeaTorrent. Is that correct? I read Vyacheslav's Design Draft document on Github, but that just left me confused....
  • Commented on what to know about aligning
    Hi "ms". I recommend you also post your question at http://www.biostars.org/....
  • Commented on AnyEvent::ForkManager stuck on Strawberry but not on ActivePerl?
    This weekend I will take the time to retest this distribution in both 32-bit and 64-bit Strawberry and pay close attention to what happens. As Mithaldu pointed out, both David Solimano and I are smoke testing on Strawberry Perl. Also,...
  • Commented on Creating a perl developer survey
    Thanks for the links. I'm pleasantly surprised by how high Windows is in the percentages. That tells me that CPAN smoke testing on Windows is more important than ever. Please add Citrus Perl to the survey....
  • Commented on Creating a perl developer survey
    I would like to know what platforms Perl programmers are using. I write most of my Perl scripts on and for Windows these days and I'm curious how many other Windows Perl programmers are out there....
  • Commented on Smoke testing on Windows
    I've been smoke testing on Windows since reading this blog post. I'm also getting hangs. I've used Process Explorer to see what is hanging and it's always due to Capture::Tiny. When things stop I'll see two Perl processes that look...
