Some days ago I discovered that my CPAN distributions count had already gone
above 100, only that my MetaCPAN
page has misled me due to
a bug (
which I reported since). I now have 103 distributions on CPAN and you can
find a list
of them on the Israeli Perl Mongers site, with whatever is missing from
the MetaCPAN page.
So now I'm in the CPAN 100 club, and now…
In this entry, I'd like to tell about several Perl-related bugs I have run
into, and how they were fixed. I know I have not been blogging a lot lately,
but, on the bright side, I was busy coding.
If you have a good web hosting, you may have run into a pattern, where you
are uploading files to it for other people to download and need to find the
URL where they were uploaded to. Thing is - recalling the exact
Rsync (= a file
uploader) command and then going to the web browser to access the URL
is time-consuming, and repetitive.
written in Perl using Moo and available on CPAN, aims to fix all that.
Here is a sample invocation from the web-site:
shlomif@telaviv1:~$ sky up /home/music/Music/mp3s/Thierry\ de\ Massia/Elements\ essentiels/01\ -\ Le\ vent.ogg
X11 forwarding request failed on channel 0
sending incremental file list
01 - Le vent.ogg
5271287 100% 147.24kB/s 0:00:34 (xfer#1, to-check=0/1)
sent 5272011 bytes received 31 bytes 87141.19 bytes/sec
total size is 5271287 speedup is 1.00
As you can see, we just specified the file, and it divined the rsync
command and gave us the resultant URL. Convenient.
First of all, I have written my
recent hacktivity log
over on my new dreamwidth.org blog, and I am not posting it here, because
it involves a lot of non-code hacktivity, which I expect to do quite a lot
more of from now.
That put aside, I am copying here something that I wrote
a Slashdot comment about why I am looking for a job not in IT. Especially
of note there are my frustrations with employers being too domineering and
control-freaks, and not …
A short time after I posted a message about
to a Perl forum, a Perl enthusiast sent me a message reading like that:
I would think that a proper screenplay grammar would be useful (I've thought
of writing one myself). Though I've looked through your screenplay examples, I
can't see any of them, anywhere, which is actually rendered in correct
screenplay format (example),
nor anything which appears…
