  • About: I blog about Perl.
  • Commented on Perl and Me, Part 6: Perl Is Engineering <i>and</i> Art
    Personally I think slight irregularity in the code promotes readability. When people do layout of text for magazines, the don't use fix width font and make everything the same, because we've learned that one thing that leads to reader fatigue...
  • Commented on A tour on perl-5.18.1 with c2ast, Marpa-powered C parser
    How is it debatable? My understanding is that its not impossible that some future compiler will not compile the source because of this. Is that true? If so than this work is valuable and we should at least have it...
  • Commented on Purpose of this blog
    Hey, I think the number one thing that stops people from blogging about all sorts of interesting things is that they think its not interesting. I do think just blogging about what you are learning with Perl is great. It...
  • Commented on OpenBedrock Moves to GitHub
    Thanks for releasing your code!...
  • Commented on Padre 1.00 has been released
    Great news, I'll give it a try on my new macbook and let you know how it goes!...
  • Commented on Why Puppet is Intrinsically Better Than Chef
    I can't comment on the best way to use Puppet to install CPAN modules, but I can say the best practice nowadays is to install a version of Perl for your application use, rather than to build on the Perl...
  • Commented on Arrow Operator Shenanigans
    The leading underscore is probably to reduce the chance of variable name collision, would be my guess. --jnap...
  • Commented on Arrow Operator Shenanigans
    Sometimes when I see stuff like this I start to think perhaps we've not even scratched the surface of what Perl5 syntax can really do, and its just long time practice holding us back. jnap...
  • Commented on Perl TV
    gabor++ # once again proving Perl programmers can both talk AND do at the same time!...
  • Commented on local::lib and File::Spec
    Personally I don't like to use 'lib' or 'local::lib' in my application scripts as I find they lead to unnecessary structural binding between your application and the directory structure. Ideally you application would be decoupled from its dependency paths (or...
  • Commented on Compare projects p2, gperl, MoarVM
    I sorta wish I knew what p2 and gperl are, and why is comparing those to moarvm meaningful...? Is there some controversy I didn't hear about at YAPC :) jnap...
  • Commented on The proposal of separating method keyword from mop
    I would however agree with, "Big jump is hard, small jump is good..." I do wish there was a way this wasn't going to be a multi year project, given all the prior art, but I guess there's nothing for...
  • Commented on Let's post information about your production to blog
    Yuki, No doubt it would be great if we could get more people involved in writing about Perl and about there work. A few years ago there was basically nothing, at least post Ironman Challenge we do see people blogging,...
  • Commented on Real Time Web Apps
    Mojolicious seems th have the most mature baked in support for async / realtime applications, so you might want to give that a go. Catalyst in the most recent stable release has the basics of async, but its still new...
  • Commented on I translate "Modern Perl Writing Style" to English
    Yuki, no doubt 'autodie' has downsides, both as you and as Nick pointed out. I guess I intended my comment to be more about mentioning it and showing an example, rather than using it to replace the classic syntax. I...
  • Commented on PerlMotion - Perl For iOS
    Very cool, makes me want to pay for a developer license over at Mac Dev! Anyone build any real apps with this and have any thoughts on performances, etc.? Looks like it compiles to LLVM, but am not an expert...
  • Commented on I translate "Modern Perl Writing Style" to English
    Thanks for translating this into English. Can I offer a few thoughts? "Do error handling in file open (Required)" You also might want to mention the autodie module which makes open errors into hard errors. Honestly this behavior for open...

    Demo looks sweet! Thanks for sharing --john...

    congrats!...
  • Commented on Announce MarpaX::Demo::JSONParser
    It is very cool to have some example applications like this to demonstrate how to use marpa and solve problem domains that are well understood, (such as parsing json, which was very concise rules) John...
  • Commented on Missing YAPC::Europe
    I was wondering that if you can't go, perhaps there's other ways you can participate? For example I imagine there's going to be some videos, and it would be great to have someone watching stuff and reporting on it, or...
  • Commented on Missing YAPC::Europe
    I don't know your schedule or what is striking range for you, but there's the German Perl workshop in Q1 2014. Not sure what's in between that you can do, but if you can go as far as Japan, then...
  • Commented on shortcomings of perl
    Regarding web frameworks, I guess I would say Perl web development does not aim to be as full stack as RoR. For example with Catalyst one uses that as a base and then builds as needed, using CPAN on the...
  • Commented on shortcomings of perl
    @nick I hear you on Perl and UTF8, however I do think that the subject is esoteric enough that even though Perl is ++ in regards to it, it does not shine as brightly as it should. I've seen several...
  • Commented on New Dancer 2 release: 0.07
    Looking forward to hearing all about it and sniping your best ideas for Catalyst :) --jnap...
  • Commented on Mapping the MOP to Moose
    "has $fetcher = die '$fetcher is required';" This works for me, I did get it right off the top, but then again I've lurked on the p5mop channel and look at the test case checkins. I see the value of...
