  • Commented on Is Perl really short of newbies?
    Thanks for the analysis. But to attract newbies to perl, we need to have good course in perl programming in MOOC platform like coursera, edx, udacity. Note that there are so good easy to follow programming courses in python, scala,...
  • Commented on A repl site for a lot of languages
    Perl would have been more better had there been good REPL like Python. I have tried Devel::REPL, pdl but not happy. As a perl fan I ask all the perl developers to make a course in Programming in perl in...

    Is it possible to compile Perl to LLVM? I see that this site is powered by Emscripted. It would be exciting to run Perl code on Javascript runtime.

  • Steven Haryanto commented on A repl site for a lot of languages

    On repl.it: strange selection of languages. Lots of esoteric and "weird" languages but no Perl, Tcl, or several other more mainstream languages. At least, there should be Python 2 *and* Python 3.

    But cool site, nevertheless.

    IIRC, a web-based REPL for Perl 6 was once online. The Pugs-based one as well as Rakudo/Parrot one.

    One of the main reason is people are lazy.and the good thing is we can use this laziness for more participation. i gave a simple demo on how to use perlbrew and use cpanm to download modules. i told them not to write a lot of code, but just use cpan to find out a module that caters to their task and use it. It helped them get started with using cpan. i gave them a demo on DBIx::Class (i am a poor presenter) but i wanted to make them understand, the pain on unreadable code.and how DBIx::Class would help them keep things clean. and predictable. but soon realized things went over their head. i…

  • Ron Abraham commented on Is Perl really short of newbies?

    I am just getting back into perl (did a lot of cool and appreciated work during college ) after a 10 year hietus but always loved the language.So i guess im a newbie.

    I want perl to take of in a big way as i feel the language has a soul and culture that is unique.

    I feel we need to take on big projects like /RT/bugzilla /movable type etc to kick some a**.
