  • Commented on Nominate Perl heroes for the 2017 White Camel Awards
    Just went to the WhiteCamel site. How in the world has Damian not won one of these? I think it's about time. As evidence, I present: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ob6YHpcXmTg&t=2s&index=1&list=PLlD3K-igA84dGmROLTKuPnNvNGgKjyADd From this work, we gain the ability to modify the Perl language in...
  • Commented on Perl less buggy than Python?
    Ugh - the link seems to have not made it to the post. http://www.i-programmer.info/news/98/11184.html...
  • Posted Perl less buggy than Python? to Matthew Persico

    The numbers would seem to suggest it:

  • Commented on Take a walk on the C side, ddt, du du, du du ...
    You are either a music connoisseur or you are dating yourself with that title. Of course, I am also dating myself. Lol. Great article....
  • Posted Maybe the King is facing revolt to Matthew Persico

    Python is often touted as the "winner" among scripting languages, but you couldn't tell from this post:

  • Commented on Perl5 to Java compiler - week 100 - bootstrapping
    Wow. Java is finally useful! Lol. Seriously, though, I'd love to see a presentation on this. Kudos....
  • Commented on Using the Perl debugger with DBIx::Class
    I would like to see more development of debugger hacks using .perldb. Maybe we can turn this into a module on CPAN, or at least a namespace on CPAN so we can add stuff like this in a standardized way....
  • Commented on Something New Every Day
    There's something to be said for braces whenever a variable bumps up against anything that !~ m/\s/: print "${user}'s crontab is missing!\n"...
  • Commented on TVPM Tech Talks in Reading, UK
    Understood. Could you at least post the presentation materials somewhere? Hmm. I wonder if we could do a PerlPM repo on git hub - one branch for each PM branch. Dated subdirs for the presentations, which could be the actual...
  • Commented on TVPM Tech Talks in Reading, UK
    Thanks. It occurred to me as I was reading this, that we've got over 100 pm groups all doing their own thing and although our cat's stupid tricks make it up to Facebook and YouTube, we aren't sharing that wealth...
  • Commented on TVPM Tech Talks in Reading, UK
    Any chance you might be streaming this someplace?...
  • Commented on Forthcoming site downtime
    Speaking of downtime, whatever happened to the beta of the site makeover?...
  • Commented on Not Comparing The Way You Meant
    Ugh - never mind. Need more coffee....
  • Commented on Not Comparing The Way You Meant
    You forgot to mention Problem #0 - this script cannot be using strict and warnings....
  • Commented on qk: Quote Membership Hash Keys
    I could live without either. I think qk() is more useful than qa(), given that qa saves you two non whitespace keystrokes: my $aref = qa( a b c ); ## vs my $aref = [qw( a b c)]; And...
  • Commented on qk: Quote Membership Hash Keys
    Well, if you're going to document qa() as qa[], you should then use qk{}, no?...
  • Commented on Saving Breakpoints in the Perl Debugger
    I posted an issue at the GitHub repo for the site and was pointed at the pre and code tags that work in markdown. Strangely enough, Preview is broken before you publish only. If you go back to edit an...
  • Commented on Saving Breakpoints in the Perl Debugger
    If anyone could point me to how to generate code blocks in Markdown, I'd appreciate it; as you can see, the formatting is poor. Thanks....
  • Posted Saving Breakpoints in the Perl Debugger to Matthew Persico

    I'll state right off the bat that I have re-invented the wheel here. However, I did not know that until I asked on Perlmonks and was pointed to the resources that I couldn't find on Google. It was suggested on Perlmonks that a blog post, even for…

  • Commented on DWIM Perl for Linux 5.18.1
    But you still need a compiler for other modules you might want to add on, no? You are not including a toolchain, right?...
