  • 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…

  • Dave Cross commented on Introduce Perl tutorial site which write by google engineer

    Some problems I found in the first few paragraphs.

    Perl stands in for "Practical Extraction and Reporting Language"

    No. It doesn't.

    From the list of pros:

    Used in Web development for mostly Payment Gateways.


    From the list of cons:

    You need to refer to complex library modules which are not so easy to understand

    That might, in some cases, be true. But it's really not something you should be writing in a tutorial.

    From the section on installing/updating Perl on Lin…

    Dave Cross

    Thanks for comments.

    I don't promote this site. I only introduce this site.

    Maybe, I will introduce the entry which is written by Perl newbie.
    Quality is not problem. Internet have mixed good and bad sites.

    I only introduce the new content about Perl tutorial.

    If you have your favorite Perl tutorial site, I can introduce the site.
    If you feel injustice, I introduce your most recommended site.

    I feel it is not good and it is very old style.

    > I also got a spam message from them. I actually get one of those quite often. From 99guru and a few other "brand new Perl tutorial sites".

    I think it is good to increase Perl site.
    Most bad things is looking down, ignore, negative campaign to Perl.

    Low level content is not so bad. I'm glad to see new Perl content.
