Happy Birthday Perl

Happy 25th Birthday, Perl! I made you a card:

perl -C -e'print map+(v9635 x8^unpack B8).(v10)[++$n%9],(unpack u,"MK__^=^WW_S_WK)FNO\$3F5U\$7BJJ.=>U51S-WK)GNM>UF=W%[K[N>?___SW__")=~/./g'

Building a Search Web App with Dancer and Sphinx

In this article, we'll develop a basic search application using Dancer and Sphinx. Sphinx is an open source search engine that's fairly easy to use, but powerful enough to be deployed in high-traffic sites, such as Craigslist and Dailymotion.

In keeping with this year's Dancer Advent Calendar trend, the example app will be built on Dancer 2, but it should work just as well with Dancer 1.

Alright, let's get to work.
