  • About: I was never in love with C or SQL like this...
  • Commented on Larry has approved renaming Perl 6 to raku
    Signatures must no longer be experimental "optional" though, should still be allowed, right? A solid OO system must become core "solid"? Define. I don't think so. I think you choose between Moose/Moo and Mouse, ship it in core and...
  • Commented on Skipping DateTime::Format::Mail in the Pull Request Club
    Is that stated in the docs somewhere? If not, there's your PR....
  • Commented on TIL - Object Method: Named Arguments Unpacking
    I always preferred my $self = shift; my %args = @_; because I usually do my $self = shift; my %args = ( param1 => "0", ## default value param2 => undef, ## documenting @_); so that I can set...
  • Commented on Daily CPAN upload chain broke, again !!!
    Kobayahsi Maru: The game is to *prepare* an upload to CPAN each day. If the upload does not make it because of technical issues, that's irrelevant. :-)...
  • Commented on Perl Blogs
    There was an attempt to redo this site, but it died. I THINK there was another proposal in the past few months, but I'd have to search for it....
  • Commented on Which edges cases could perl shed to make it easier to parse?
    And isn't this what RPerl is trying do do, albeit approaching from the other direction, i.e.; removing stuff from an existing implementation as opposed to RPerl that's adding selected stuff to a new implementation?...
  • Commented on Which edges cases could perl shed to make it easier to parse?
    The problem is you'll never remove all that stuff; too much prior art. The best you'll do implement another codepath without all that stuff, turned on with a pragma and now you'll have yet another codepath to maintain....
  • Commented on Language::SIMPLE - The Portable Integrated Scripting System
    Wow. You've come a long way since the first version of GUIDeFATE. Sorry I wasn't able to use and beta it for you, but glad to see you've taken off with it!...
  • Commented on Introducing: Perl 6 Marketing Assets Web App
    Damn. How do we do this for Perl5????...
  • Commented on The Future of Perl 5
    Using all the stuff Damian showed off at TPC-DC 2017 or by actually adding to the core?...
  • Commented on New githook-perltidy feature: README from POD
    Wow. I wish I had seen this a year ago when I wrote my own. :-)...
  • Commented on A new object system for Perl
    Very interesting. Dot is more of a technique than code. Suggest you change the docs in one way: Use something other than 'class' for the subroutine name in your examples. I spent a few minutes trying to determine how to...
  • Commented on Four backends now for GUIDeFATE...but the struggle continues
    Ron, I am confused; I don't see anywhere in this project where a web server is relevant. As I understand it, this project is about GUIs - local, on machine, no-network programs. From the post: "GUIDeFATE is a tool that...
  • Commented on Pi Day!
    Just make sure you publish version 3.1415 next March 14th. :-)...
  • Commented on Guiding Fate
    At this point I would: 1) CPAN it. As is. That gives you exposure which will bring in Pull Requests so you don't have to do everything. 2) Once CPAN'ed I would add in support for Tk - that's the...
  • Commented on White Camels 2017
    White Camel site is missing 2016 winners....
  • 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:

    https://developers.slashdot.org/story/17/07/22/2250237/ieee-spectrum-declares-python-the-1-programming-language

  • 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....
