POD speculation


[...] expects to find either a =head(n>1) or an =item block documenting a subroutine.

In pure TIMTOWTDI spirit, it's up to you to decide which style you want to adopt. There are PROs and CONs, though.

Writing a simple splunk API client.

I needed to do some work with splunk the log and monitoring analytics toolkit. Specifically I needed to combine disparate logs from different systems to solve a problem that had been intefering with our systems for a long time. I had a look around for stuff on the CPAN, but it was either embedded into other bigger things that I didn't want to have to deal with, or did not work for me for maintenance reasons. So I decided to write my own. The library I wrote is available here in draft form.

Now because this was written by me for debugging purposes, I think it shouldn't be a CPAN module - not without a lot of hardening it up - but I wanted to share it anyway, as a handy way of doing API integration.

Revisiting Perl 6, and my first PR

I've been programming in Perl 5 since 2001 or so. In 2012, I took a brief look at Perl 6 just to see what it was all about, and wrote a simple blog entry describing some of the basic changes between P5 and P6. I promptly walked away from the language until a week ago.

Over the course of the last week, I decided that I want to go full-out and really learn the language. My goal was to port my File::Edit::Portable P5 module to P6. This module saves record separators from a file, then when writing back, it re-uses the saved line endings. So if you open a Windows file on a Unix system, it'll re-write the file with the original Windows line endings.

I began reading an intro, which led me to numerous pieces of the official documentation.
