My First Perl 6 Module: Net::SSH

I've written my first Perl 6 module! I wanted to start contributing modules, but it took a while to find one that wasn't already done, but was simple enough to tackle as my first one. I also wanted to make a proper distribution for it, which was something I hadn't done before even in Perl 5, so it took a while to get everything in order. I'm sure there are still mistakes, but I'm still working on it, and it should go much better on future modules.

The distribution is at my GitLab repository. So far, it's just a simple wrapper around the 'ssh' command-line tool, which runs a command on a remote server and returns the output as an array of lines. I borrowed some of the code from the Perl 5 module Net::SSH, and Perl 6-ified it. It's not ready for panda or anything, but I hope to get it there once I make it more capable and add more error-checking and testing. A few observations:

GitPrep 1.11 released - Support git 2, and add image support for markdown.

I released GitPrep 1.11. You can install portable GitHub system into Unix / Linux easily. It is second major release.

Because you can install GitPrep into your own server, you can create users and repositories without limit. You can use GitPrep freely because GitPrep is free software. You can also install GitPrep into shared rental server.

GitPrep (Document and Repository)

Features added in 1.11 are:

  • Support git 2
  • - Add image support for markdown. you can specify images in the repository by relative pass,For example, ![Image Name](images/a.png)



You can try GitPrep example.

Exact Perl location with B::DeparseTree (and Devel::Callsite)

Recently I have been working on this cool idea: using B::Deparse to help me figure out exactly where a program is stopped. This can be used in a backtrace such as when a program crashes from Carp::Confess or in a debugger like Devel::Trepan.

To motivate the idea a little bit, suppose my program has either of these lines:

$x = $a/$b + $c/$d;
($y, $z) = ($e/$f, $g/$h);

I might want to know which division in the line is giving me an illegal division by zero. A while back with the help of perlmonks, the idea of using the OP address was the only promising avenue. More recently, I re-discovered B::Deparse and realized it might be able to do the rest: give the context around a specific op-code location. Devel::Callsite can be used to get your current op-code address.

B::Deparse is one of those things like the venerable perl debugger:

Corrupting the Youth

There's a new version of Modern Perl out in print now. So, what should you do with your old one?

I gave mine away.

Programming Exercises for beginners

I have started to create a list of programming exercises. Mostly extracted from my Perl beginner course. Some of them already have "Tools" that help solve the exercise. Some of them even have links to a solution in Perl 5.
My plan is to add many more exercises and to provides "Tools" and "Solutions" in Perl 6 and other programming languages as well. (Currently Ruby, Python and JavaScript are on the short list.)

If you have ideas for exercises I'd be happy to hear about them.
