Michael Daum: WebDAV now available on Lighttpd, Nginx, IIS …
Previously the WebDAV solution from C-Dot Consultants was only available on Apache web servers. Well, that's all changed! The WebDAV suite from C-Dot Consultants was originally developed for the Apache2 web server. By abstracting out the protocol hand [...]

Arnaud Assad (Arhuman): Why Javascript in 2016 ?
Many of my friends express their surprise when I say I chose to learn JavaScript in 2016.

With so many cool languages to learn, why using a "toy language" of the past instead of, let's say Haskell, Go, Nimrod, Rust (just to name some)?

First and foremo [...]

Define and use constants for use by other modules in Perl

Colin Newell: PAUSE permissions code outline
This is a quick brain dump from my brief coding session on PAUSE working on the permissions. This won’t make sense without reading the code yourself. Unless you’re interested in modifying PAUSE or reviewing my changes I would ignore this blog post. I [...]

The Monotonic Versioning Manifesto looks interesting. Here’s the summary. Version is composed of only two numbers: X.Y. No leading zero is allowed for both numbers (so you must start at 1.1, not 0.1 nor 1.0). X indicates compatibility and must [...]

Display git branch in Windows command prompt

David's post "Displaying the Git branch in the terminal prompt with and without Perl" reminded me of a batch file I use for the same purpose. Of course, vanilla cmd.exe does not all [...]
