Most Perl programmers using named captures in regex probably pick the
(?<NAME>...) syntax, as that's what's displayed more prominently in the Perl documentation and tutorials.
However, Python does not support this syntax and uses
(?P<NAME>...) instead (notice the extra P character). Incidentally, visual regex tool like kiki is built with Python and only support this syntax.
(?P<NAME>...) is also supported by Perl. So if you work with Python or use kiki, you might, like me, want to accustom yourself to using the P syntax.
PCRE (and thus PHP and other PCRE-using languages) supports both syntax. Komodo IDE's Rx toolkit support both. However, Ruby and .NET only support the non-P syntax. Well, that's how the real world works.
There are several modules to help you create command-line program with tab completion feature, including Getopt::Complete and Perinci::CmdLine (and its new lightweight alternative Perinci::CmdLine::Lite. Now here's another one. Introducing Getopt::Long::Complete.
This module is a drop-in replacement for the venerable ="https://metacpan.org/pod/Ge…
(This blog post will serve as a document that I point to for people to read when I suggest people renaming their third-party-API modules [although not necessarily always from Net:: to WWW:: or WebService::]. I'm currently on a Questhub quest that does exactly this.)
Perl being a glue language, people write many modules to connect to third-party API services. These days, most public API services are web-based. What namespace should you pick for your module?
A lot of people still use /var/www/users/steven_haryanto/index.html
I'm running Debian Stable (7.x, Wheezy, 7.4 to be exact) on amd64.
Count all Debian packages by their implementation language (I know, not the most efficient way):
% ( for tag in `debtags tagcat | grep '^Tag: implemented-in::' | sed 's/^Tag: //'`; do
echo -e `debtags search $tag | wc -l` "\t" $tag
done ) | sort -nr
UPDATE #1 2014-07-11: Added Catmandu::Exporter::Table. This module is not exactly lightweight, so I will not consider it for usage in Perinci::CmdLine::Lite, but it's interesting to benchmark anyway.
UPDATE #2 2014-07-11: Nudged by me, Jakob extracted the table-generating
functionality of Catmandu::Exporter::Table into its own module Text::MarkdownTable. This module depends on nothing but Moo. Great job Jakob. Although for my particular proje…
