  • rockyb commented on A Basic Challenge

    I don't know how others feel, but both of these while having some coolness isn't as direct or cool as how you do this with C++. Doing something not as good, albeit a long time ago isn't the same thing, IMHO.

  • rollbear commented on A Basic Challenge

    Hullo all,

    I don't generally write in Perl, so in many ways I don't belong here. But I was made aware of this challenge, and since I'm the one guilty of the C++ stuff, I thought I'd introduce myself. Hi there!

    Are you sure you want to show that Perl can be an even weirder language than C++ is?

    I understand the spirit. I did this in part because I was amazingly bored, and in part because an ex-colleague complained about having inherited code that reminded him of BASIC. The combination of the two made horns grow on my forehead, and they weren't the BSD type.


  • Makoto Nozaki commented on Bounty for fixing CPAN modules

    As a start, I have made a list of ideas I gathered and also added a link to BountySource. Feedback will be welcomed!

  • Henryk Paluch commented on A Simple Mojolicious/DBI Example


    For Unicode support there are few fixes needed:


    use Encode;
    plugin Charset => {charset => 'utf-8'};

    modify / method to:

    any '/' => sub {
      my $self = shift;
      my $rows = $self->select;
      # convert utf-8 octets -> unicode
      for my $Item ( @{ $rows } ){
          map { $_ = decode('utf-8',$_) } @{ $Item };
      $self->stash( rows => $rows );

    Best regards

    This is awesome! There is also Bank::Holidays on the CPAN, which is limited to the five years the Federal Reserve posts on their site. Full disclosure: I am a contributor to that module.
