  • Commented on How not to use Moose
    I can think of a couple of cases. For example: The person was told that he has to use Moose or his code is not modern enough. So he uses whatever he was able to understand. This is a very...

    This is an excellent post. Thank you! A funny thing is that just a few days ago I was looking for a random string generator to generate e-mail validation code for a web registration form and the module I found...
  • Commented on MetaCPAN Undergoes "Unplanned Re-index"
    I got quite upset about this when I first read but I can understand that stuff might happen. Especially to people who do things. With that said I think it is very important to make sure people feel confident that...
  • Commented on Test::BDD::Cucumber
    I have not yet managed to "feel" how Cucumber would work for me but I was happy to see you made this. Unfortunately the links to MetaCPAN did not work for me. They did not lead to the expected documents...

    It might be useful if you could put a clear comment both in the Changes file and in the documentation pointing out what is the last version of your module that supports Firefox 3.0 For extra bonus the module could...
  • Commented on Richard Stallman cancels university talks
    IMHO that's a new definition of FUD. If the Israeli community took offense and shouted "they hate us, they hate us" then I think it means the events have increased they hatred towards the Palestinians. Of course I don't really...
  • Commented on Richard Stallman cancels university talks
    Unfortunately based on what happened I don't think the decision of RMS not giving a speech at Israeli universities was NOT because of his ideals. It was simply because the Palestinians - (and we don't know who exactly there) -...

    That's awesome. Thank you!. Now I need to make it also listen to messages. BTW have you considered sending a patch to XML::Stream ?...
  • Commented on The Future of Perl Documentation (part 1 of 3)

  • Commented on Padre 0.80 has been released.
    SEOing? I just checked on Google and for me searching for Perl IDE Padre is the first hit but searching for Perl editor is only on 7th place. So let's reinforce both links: Perl IDE Perl editor Thanks for your...
  • Commented on Why don't they contribute to open source projects
    I am sure some of the people reading this will be interested what was my original post so let me link to the archive.   In that draft I had the following order: 1) Pick a project 2) Learn how...
  • Commented on Why I don't write in Pascal
    I should probably also talk to Ido and besides apologizing I should give my explanation: Most of just don't know anything about Modern Pascal. Those of us who used in 10-20 years ago (OMG) probably think it is old. Some...
  • Commented on No More Excuses
    People get busy, interest shifts, modules get unmaintained. I think modules that have more than one maintainers have a better chance on the long run. Unfortunatelly there are relatively few examples for this and I think the current culture of...
  • Commented on Above my intellectual pay grade
    I'd say "Don't whine, JFDI" and grin to it. I know how bad it is when you are overcommitted. My standard way to deal with that is to try to prioritize and eliminate the projects that are end of the...
  • Commented on YAPC::Europe 2010 - Thoughts Pt 2/3 - Promoting A YAPC
    While there are 5,000 attendees at FOSDEM the other interesting number was that there were about 400 who came by the Perl booth and were either already using Perl or were somehow interested. Nearly none of those have every been...
  • Commented on 4 days at Eth0 Summer 2010
    Yeah, it isn't easy to face that a lot during such events but every time you make them smile with the tuits or with the "We suck at marketing" card you take a piece of that crap away. After a...

    Oh and just to clarify the previous post, I am very happy with people who do invest in learning Perl 6 even after they saw, measure and publish the slowness....
  • Commented on Rakudo is ...
    Ovid, I am not sure why are you surprised. Anyone trying to use Rakudo now will encounter this extream slowness and then they will try to do the only thing they can - measure it.   They can't appreciate the...

  • Commented on What would you like TPF to do?
    @autarch, I appreciate your detailed answer and the separation of issues but one thing I really missed from your post. What would you like the answers to be to the questions? For several items you wrote that TPF board needs...
  • Commented on Modules vs. Applications
    I totally agree and I am trying to preach just that. Tomorrow, after your Moose talk we can discuss how you can build something cool on top of Padre. Maybe a desktop Google Buzzer?...

    Excellent post and great work you did. Thank you! Regarding more events, you can take a look at http://www.perlfoundation.org/perl5/index.cgi?events where we listed many potential events (you are also welcome to add more). Specifically I hope to visit the German Perl...
  • Commented on Really?
    I think educated_foo meant Padre, the Perl IDE but for some reason is very angry with it/us. But why this blog entry at all? This feels almost like Python programmers looking for opportunities to bash Perl....

  • zeel.myopenid.com commented on The Triumphant Return of Zoidberg -- A Modular Perl Shell

    I force installed out of curiosity. It uses a function not available on Windows:

    The getpwuid function is unimplemented at C:\Perl-5.14\perl\site\bin/zoid.bat line 101.

    Apparently Win32::pwent implements getpwuid(). This will fail to build because of a declared dependency on the obsolete Win32::Registry, but it can be force installed if Win32::TieRegistry is present, and passes all tests.

  • Edgar Klerks commented on Rakudo is ...

    I don't find the slowness a real problem. I really appreciate perl6, coding in it is a joy. It has a powerful feel to it. (The speed is a lot better now)

    It is a difficult process developing a new and innovative language.

    It is too bad that people don't appreciate the amount of work, which is put into it. Every language needs some early adopters. I hope people pick it up, it would be a pity if it vanished.

    Is there something like cpan for perl6? I couldn't find anything like it. I was planning to use perl6 for system administration scripts. It would be nice if it is…

  • educated_foo commented on How not to use Moose
    The person was told that he has to use Moose or his code is not modern enough.
    This is a common "Modern" disease, which can even be caught from the core documentation these days.
  • jnareb.myopenid.com commented on How not to use Moose

    There are various "Moose lite" here: Mouse, Moo, etc. depending on what subset of Moose is really required.

    BTW. roles are awesome!

  • Holy Zarquon's Singing Fish commented on How not to use Moose

    On the other hand, I don't see what's wrong with this (aside from the iffy class name and behaviour):


    package Messiah;
    use Mo;
    has $_ => 'is' => 'rw' for qw/foo bar baz/;
    sub boom { die "aargh"}
    1;

    I messed around with the single line assignment to get a collapsed declaration that actually compiles.
