  • Commented on What's happening with DBD::Oracle?
    I'm using DBD::Oracle for work, too. Though I hope we migrate to PostgreSQL or MariaDB someday......
  • Commented on Alternatives to rand()
    The only downside is the slow performance, which is typical of the AES-CTR algorithm. It shouldn't be on semi-recent hardware (which has AES support). On my not-so-recent box, openssl speed -evp chacha20 gets 1.6GB/sec with big blocks, but … -evp...
  • Commented on Golang's 'defer' in Perl
    In your make_upper_caser_iterator example, I'm pretty sure that $fh becoming unreferenced closes the file anyway. So the explicit close isn't needed (except, of course, that you could check the result and handle errors). Also, if your file handle is valid...

    I am using it at work, against 10g, soon 11g, formerly 9i. So can do some testing of any proposed releases if that helps. Personally I'm getting by ok with the current package, but would be v happy to use a release with fewer problems.
