  • Commented on Which modules are currently loaded by process?
    For more advanced output, use Devel::TraceUse....
  • Commented on A most amusing annoyance
    Using Perl one-liners from a Unix shell requires that you master two programming languages: Perl and your shell. Quoting is a basic feature of shell programming that you must understand if you want to avoid surprises with one-liners. If your...
  • Commented on Padre is now on Github
    Is the old Svn repository now closed or at least frozen? What is the policy for commit bits on the new repo? Where are issues tracked now? Still in Track? If yes, the "Issues" tab should be disabled on Github....
  • Commented on I hate unpacking sub calls with shift
    Note also that @_ is alias to arguments given to the sub which means that it gives you not only read access to the argument, but also write access if it is a variable. my $a = 2; say $a;...
  • Commented on Public 0 is the new Inbox 0
    I currently have 30 in my "Yours"/"Open" :( But I'm glad to see I have 216 in my "Yours"/"Closed". Yay! Most of them are for CPAN modules....
  • Commented on how to add switches to a perl program like plackup or dzil
    Much simpler: use -S flag of perl (see perlrun): perl -d:Confess -S dzil release See also my dzil profiling tricks from my talk at YAPC::EU....
  • Commented on Rewriting Pod::Readme
    @neil Do it! I would use that too!...
  • Commented on Rewriting Pod::Readme
    See Dist::Zilla plugins: Dist::Zilla::Plugin::ReadmeFromPod Dist::Zilla::Plugin::ReadmeAnyFromPod Dist::Zilla::Plugin::ReadmeMarkdownFromPod...
  • Commented on Classify your RT tickets on CPAN Day!
    Yes, there's a post somewhere about that ("Maintainer's notes on rt.cpan.org")....
  • Commented on Put your CPAN distributions on github
    Also, don't forget to add a link to your Github account from your MetaCPAN profile. This will help potential contributors to find your repositories even if you forgot to put the link in META.yml/json....
  • Commented on Don't be afraid to rename your module / dist
    @Ahmad Just remember that namespaces are quite an old-school way to provide search hints. Searching the Internet has long ago moved away from guessing domain names, and we now rely on search engines that analyze content and, in particular, use...
  • Commented on Give your module a good SEE ALSO section
    Now that we have META.yml/META.json the DEPENDENCIES section is quite irrelevant as it is not as powerful as the raw data. Sites like MetaCPAN can process META files to render them for humans, even for modules that don't have the...
  • Commented on Broken LWP in the wild
    LWP 6.04 requires Mozilla::CA version 20110101. However an obsolete version of Mozilla::CA may be a security issue (depending on the web sites targeted). It should at least recommend the latest version of Mozilla::CA at the time of release. But anyway,...
  • Commented on Test::RequiresInternet now on CPAN
    Here is how Microsoft Windows 7+ tests Internet availability: http://blog.superuser.com/2011/05/16/windows-7-network-awareness/...
  • Commented on Another (silly) idea: autocorrect in shell (bash) tab completion
    You should try fish which has many interactive features that you may like....
  • Commented on git blame across the entire codebase
    And what about linking your post to that script?...
  • Commented on search.cpan.org
    A few reasons why I'm a MetaCPAN promoter: search.cpan.org still has the look of 1997 web sites. Just this can let people think that Perl is stuck there. you can submit issues about MetaCPAN, they are public, and you get...
  • Commented on Removing Boilerplate with Import::Into
    @davewood: use experimental qw< signatures postderef >;...
  • Commented on And Now for Something Not Moose Releated
    Movable Type ate a bit of code... my $lines = `wc -l < "$dir/$file"`;...
  • Commented on And Now for Something Not Moose Releated
    Here is how to do it the perl way: #!/usr/bin/env perl use 5.010; # // say use strict; use warnings; use autodie; my $dir = shift // '.'; # Map filename => modification time my %files = # Note that...
  • Commented on Immutability with Moo(se)
    @mascip: DateTime being mutable is a bad design. Just don't use mutable classes for the properties of the class you want to be immutable. Yes, I know this is good in theory, but hard is practice due to the DateTime...
  • Commented on Prototypes and the call checker
    Another typo in §2: "takes affect" => "takes effect"...
  • Commented on Prototypes and the call checker
    The link to ex5 is broken....
  • Commented on Bangkok.pm 1 meet up short summary and pictures.
    Steven: You could start with social meetings, like most of Paris.pm meetings. This helps to build a community by building on friendship. Discussions about Perl will come informally. But still, having a summary of the event (list of subjects discussed,...
  • Commented on Marketing for Perl is easy because Perl is awesome
    "No modules on CPAN, not a member of any Perl-organisation, not a single line of code written in the past 9 years, and mainly being silly and loud." Hey, Wendy, that's exactly why the White Camel Award was invented! And...
  • Commented on Why kickstarting increases chances of success
    Could you fix the HTML to use hyperlinks?...
  • Commented on Finally a Perl Mod for Canadians
    Typo in the title... (or maybe a pun I don't get)...
  • Commented on German Perl Workshop 2014 - Talks available on YouTube - T+25 days
    yapc.tv and perltv.org exist to centralize such videos. It would be helpful to add the videos (or the links) on those sites too....
  • Commented on parsing email to get required information using perl script
    This site is for blogging about Perl. This is not a forum for asking questions. Here are two alternative sites to post your question: StackOverflow and Perl Monks....
  • Commented on Introducing Term::TablePrint
    Do you know about PrePAN.org? That would have been a good place to ask about the name and design of your module before publishing it. The name of the module is in fact misleading (in fact I started to write...
