  • Commented on A famous camel visits Frankfurt
    Meeltje at Fosdem 2012: http://flic.kr/p/bsGYAn...
  • Commented on We're making a proposal to host YAPC::EU 2013
    That's good news. Last year was my first YAPC and it was quite good IMHO. This year looks a bit disorganized to me so far. As for Kiev, no visa for TR as well after 1 August 2012 (so, that...
  • Commented on Guess what this does ...
    Interesting, but I think this has nothing to do with Perl expertise as it's just some command in the debugger. And yeah I had no idea what it was doing (apart from guessing what @DB::typeahead can be from its name)...
  • Commented on Rvalue references
    Right... I thought it was also creating a glob at the same time (which I'd expect to override undef())....
  • Commented on Rvalue references
    $ perl -wE 'Internals::SvREADONLY(${\undef},0);undef=42;say undef; undef $^O; say $^O' 42 Use of uninitialized value $^O in say at -e line 1....
  • Commented on The Price of Cleverness (YAML is not Safe)
    I think the quoted code is shitty code, not clever and there is no point putting all that crap into a single line...
  • Commented on Have you seen perl-reversion?
    It’s a quite easy task if you just need to conform with your own code (for locating and parsing the version stuff I mean). Not quite re-usable, but I’m doing the same thing with http://bit.ly/HPRw7r...
  • Commented on How many faces do you count?
    Very nice and it detected me too :) But it also matched a foot as a face (right side -- near Liz)...
  • Commented on MovableType is the Ugly Duckling of CMS'
    Forget Modern Perl, MT needs a "previous posts" link in the home page built-in :p and maybe getting rid of PHP parts so have a less complicated system. etc. I don't follow what Melody did though......
  • Commented on Plack::Middleware::NoMultipleSlashes
    Well... If you end up with multiple slashes, the problem is in somewhere else. This is no better than blindly silencing the warnings in Perl code instead of actually fixing the cause....
  • Commented on SmartGit - Finally a Window git client that doesn't suck
    What about TortoiseGit? Not graphical enough? :)...
  • Commented on Why Module::Build sucks
    1. There is no `make` :) 2. I just put the xs into root and then did xs_files => { 'Bar.xs' => 'lib/Foo/Bar.xs' }, for Build.PL and nothing for Makefile.PL (which I generate automatically -- no, not with M::B) "Less...
  • Commented on Perl-based Massively Multiplayer Online Game
    Reading this entry's title, I thought you were referring to the CPAN :) Hmm... That reminds me that I need to check my kwalitee scores...
  • Commented on Installing Catalyst by Hand
    LOL :D...
  • Commented on Not Quite Getting It
    That's a silly code. If someone knows about unit testing, must also know not to do silly things IMNSHO....
  • Commented on Parallel programming with fork() and tail()ing logs
    @ Aristotle 1. Hmm... Good point. I don't have a solid answer. But since it does not manipulate any files, it's better to get rid of the child I guess. 2. Proc::Fork looks nice. I missed it :)...
  • Commented on Parallel programming with fork() and tail()ing logs
    You're welcome Sawyer X. 2. I just opened a RT ticket and will wait for a couple of months. 3. As I said, the client does not use Perl directly on indirectly, they needed it for this project and LWP...
  • Posted Parallel programming with fork() and tail()ing logs to Burak Gürsoy

    It was a log watcher and another tiny program watching it (watcher watcher). Basically, it's an extended `tail -f` watching over multiple logs generated by some persistent programs simultaneously and sending al…

  • Commented on What would you like TPF to do?
    I'm in the Perl community, but outside of TPF. So, as an "outsider", TPF looks like a buddy organization where 4-5 people approve some grants for small programming projects (that's the idea I got initially). And it's simply an unknown...
  • Commented on Devel-Platform-Info
    Well... I took a quick look and it seemed like a duplicate. Bu I may steal some parts if they are absent in Sys::Info :)...
  • Commented on Devel-Platform-Info
    I think that you should take a look at my Sys::Info module....
  • Commented on Dates in Latin
    Good catch :) Congrats Ovid....
  • Commented on Looking for work in London?
    "Sometimes the recruiters tell me their company will sponsor permits." Thanks, it's good to know :) I wonder why they do not use jobs.perl.org? If they do, then why not mention this (from time to time, only a couple of...
  • Commented on A Tiny Affordance
    Well... The main problem seems to be "the diamond" AFAICT, but I'm not sure if this applies to Perl itself since the classes and inheritance is always ordered and you don't need to guess which method is invoked unless some...
  • Commented on A Tiny Affordance
    So, why is multiple inheritance a bad thing? It's a matter of taste IMHO...
  • Commented on Onion and CPAN
    cpon.org already taken :/...
  • Commented on 2010 Vienna QA Workshop, final summary video
    Thanks for the videos. It could've been better if everyone said their names first though. I don't recognize most of the people in there :p...
  • Commented on The perl repository goes all the way back to Perl 1
    I *think* there is also a perl1-on-parrot project...
  • Commented on PAUSE UI Enhancement with Greasemonkey
    Hmm... I haven't tried it with Chrome but Firefox did not give me such a warning. I use Firefox for development stuff and Opera for normal browsing :) I think you can only limit the script to a specific part...
  • Commented on XS bits: Overloaded interfaces
    Some of the errors are from the templates, which I believe we can't touch (or can we?). Is there a specific reason for wanting a validated page? Even mobile browsers are advanced enough to handle this kind of pages and...
