  • Posted Perl Toolchain Summit 2017 - PPI 1.222 has been released - tests, parsing fixes to Cat Eats Mouse

    PPI is a Perl document parser that enables easy analysis and manipulation of Perl source code in a structured manner.

    It has been 2.75 years since the last PPI release, v1.218, so we're on a curve of shortening the gaps. ;)

    Thanks to the efforts of many contributors to PPI, the sup…

  • Commented on Else Clauses on Loops
    Fwiw, there is no need to ever use foreach other than to give newbies very wrong impressions about it doing anything different. It is exactly as useless as the human appendix, because it does nothing that for doesn't already do,...

    And a personal note: Logging to STDERR by default would be extremely astonishing to me. It is bad enough that people do this accidentally, and make it impossible to usefully tease apart when capturing program output what indicates error and...

    Note: BPO doesn't notify commenters of responses to them. As for the changes: If i read it in detail i might understand why it does, but what's still lacking is a simple sentence that does not answer the "what" or...
  • Commented on Beam::Emitter v1.004 Released
    I'd recommend extending the synopsis into something that actually does something sensible. This primarily since i just spent 2 minutes skipping back and forth in the docs, and i still don't know why i would want to use this, or...

    Due to a dispute on the exact nature of the future of DBIx-Class development after Peter Rabbitson's pending departure, a conversaton has been opened on the DBIx-Class mailing list to feel out what the users of DBIx-Class think.

    If you have an interest in the module and its future, please …

  • Commented on Retraction of Geo::Coder::Geocoder::US
    Please don't delete it, but have the last release of it be a "tombstone release", like this one, which explains why the code is gone: https://metacpan.org/pod/Nagios::Plugin...

    Reaching out to the Perl community at large due to this release being hardware-sensitive and feedback being most useful to me when it comes from many various hardware combinations, particularly if the graphics cards involved are older or stranger.

    Also, just a small personal note: You pick on this question: "Is there a reason why you think one CPU is better than another?" And frankly, i think you read it in a meaner tone than the author intended. I've...

No further details have been announced by Die Bahn yet, but…

  • Posted PPI 1.219_001 - please test - breaking ->prototype changes and parse improvements to Cat Eats Mouse

    I took some time today to prepare a number of pull requests by MOREGAN for release, and the tarball for 1.219_001 is now on CPAN. Please test it and let me know if you run into problems with your module. Most of the changes simply improve parsing, but the ->prototype changes might break things if…

  • Ron Savage commented on Else Clauses on Loops

    Hi Mithaldu

    JFTR The appendix is not useless. When recovering from illness your body can preferentially pump 'good' bacteria (i.e. part of the microbiome - Wikipedia) out of the appendix to re-populate the rest of the intestine. Fact of the Week!

    Cheers

  • morandimus commented on Else Clauses on Loops

    Mithaldu, while you are technically correct (the best kind of correct!) I personally find the foreach spelling of for to be a lot more intuitive because it's more like natural language. And to me, fewer characters is never more important than better clarity.

  • morandimus commented on Else Clauses on Loops

    Pawel, in your for loop example, the else clause would not be executed because the loop was executed at least once (it had to be entered in order to get to the last). In your while example, the else clause would be executed, because the loop body was never entered. I hope that is clear from my description.

    Any language feature can be abused and sure, you could use this to create confusing and nonintuitive code. You can also write whole scripts that executed in the evaluation part of s///e, but that doesn't m…

  • morandimus commented on Else Clauses on Loops

    preaction, while googling around to see if any other languages have this feature, I encountered the else clause on loops in Python. I was really boggled... it seems like it's invoked in the exact opposite of circumstances when a loop's "else" clause should be.

    I agree this would be very useful when paired with grep (or map)

  • morandimus commented on Else Clauses on Loops

    Grinnz, I think the functionality of the continue block would be unaffected. It is executed after each iteration of the loop body, so if the loop block is executed at least once, the continue block is executed at least once (and the else block is skipped), and if the loop body is never executed, the continue block is never executed (and the else block is executed).

    That said, are both of the following allowed? Is there a difference in execution between them? Is the second nonsensical and should be disallowed?

      while …
