    We're all used to working with arrays to implement queues and stacks using shift, unshift, push, and pop. They allow you to keep your data nice and tidy,…

    Hi, Just curious: how does Object::Simple compare to Moo ("Minimalist Object Orientation") that has Moose compatibility?...
  • Commented on POD speculation
    Hi Chris, Makes sense. I always used "=item" because it allowed me to say "=item B<foo> ( [I<arg>] )", but that only gets you so far. It looks nice, but it doesn't show up in the TOC, and worse, for...

    No one ever reads my doc. Much less the actual pod that generates it. If the topic even comes up it is to defend the use of perl when blub is so much better. Still here are my thoughts:

    I'm pretty much a snippet user and use one that maps sub foo into =head3 foo\n\n\n\=cut\n\nsub foo {\n}

    The main reason to choose a head over a item is the typesetting tradition of TOC elements for all heads. The choice of =head3 leaves room for a =head2 to provide subsections if needed between the predefined =head1 sections demanded by manual page convention. Of course I did spend quite a…

    Moo is Moose compatibility and less memory without Class::Mop.
