  • About: I use Perl to support an EDA engineering organization. Occasionally I write about the things I do with Perl.
  • Commented on Elapsed Time in Test Output
    Steven, That's a good question. I don't know how an alternative formatter can be activated from within a test file, which would probably be required for CPAN Testers to use a custom formatter. This may be the use case I...
  • Commented on Elapsed Time in Test Output
    Thanks, Ron. I rather liked the Time::Elapsed module when I found it and, in fact, had started using it when I was still adding timing code to my test files. I may try to use it if I develop a...
  • Commented on Elapsed Time in Test Output
    Thanks for pointing out the use of the --timer flag. I had meant to say something about it, but forgot. It's one of the options I have set in my ~/.proverc file and, as you mentioned, is quite useful for...
  • Posted Elapsed Time in Test Output to sirhc

    I’ve been writing tests for a web service in which one of the methods would occasionally take an inordinate amount of time. The amount of time was inconsistent and it would be useful to capture some timing data to provide the vendor. But, I didn’t want to litter my test files with…

  • Posted Repeated Capturing and Parsing to sirhc

    An interesting query was recently posted to the internal Perl mail list at work. The questioner was trying to match a pattern repeatedly, capturing all of the results in an array. But, it wasn't doing quite what he expected. The message, with minor edits, went a little something like the…

  • Commented on Automating On Call Jury Instructions
    As requested, I've posted a version using Mojo::UserAgent. As a bonus, I've updated the original to use WWW::Scripter....
  • Commented on Automating On Call Jury Instructions
    Mojo::UserAgent looks neat, thanks for the pointer. Maybe, as a demonstration, I'll write a version of my script using it. I suspect my local Perl Mongers group would enjoy seeing different approaches to solving this problem....
  • Posted Automating On Call Jury Instructions to sirhc

    Early in February, I received a jury summons for the United States District service (at least in this court) are placed on call for a period of about 30 days. I was to call for instructions on April 1 and potentially pro…

  • Posted For Want of a Newline to sirhc

    Recently I had the pleasure of spending three hours debugging an obscure bug. An obscure bug I caused by introducing a newline. That little punk, 0x0A.

    I released a new version of a command line program. For me, it’s an elegant piece of work, combi…

  • Commented on Ninja Code
    You're right, and it's glaringly obvious now that I see it. I originally wrote something about this while at OSCON back in 2008, so I no longer remember if it was their bug or my transcription error. Though it might...
  • Posted Ninja Code to sirhc

    As this is only my second post—my first merely being a plug for a Damian Conway talk at my local Perl Mongers meeting—I thought I’d keep it short and silly.

    At OSCON 2008, Amazon had a prominent booth advertising heavily that they were hiring. They didn’t want to h…

  • Posted San Diego Perl Mongers Present Damian Conway to sirhc

    The San Diego Perl Mongers present Damian Conway. One night only, Monday, October 11, 7 PM at the offices of Knobbe Martens,
