Sinan Unur (Sinan): Perl6 UTF-8 output in cmd.exe on Windows 8.1

Back in May, starting with UTF-8 output from Perl and C programs in cmd.exe on Windows 8, I wrote a few posts summarizing my bewilderment with extra bytes appearing in UTF-8 output from perl when cmd.exe codepage was set to UTF-8 via chcp 65001.

Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 059 Array Indices
The PBP reminds us that we can use negative indexes to access arrays in reverse, instead of having to do calculations for it. It suggests several useful reasons, including readability and getting the interpreter to complain in some cases instead of s [...]

We’ve actually been trying to hire someone for a while, but there was some question about what states we can hire from. First of all, we’re hiring a Senior Software Engineer. This involves a lot of Perl, some Go, and the possibility of C [...]

perlcodesample: 正規表現を利用する | XSによるC/C++バインディング入門
XSで正規表現を使う方法を解説します。ただし、現在、Perlのドキュメントに使用方法が解説されていないので、試し試しでやっているので、間違っていたら教えてください。 正規表現のコンパイル XSで正規表現を使用するにはまずpregcomp関数を使って、正規表現をコンパイルする必要があります。これは、正規表現のリファレンスを作成する操作に対応すると考えてください。 # Perl my $re = qr/[0-9]+/; # XS (pregcompの第二引数は正規表現のフラグ) SV* sv_re [...]
Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 058 Dollar-Underscore
Mr. Conway suggests that you be wary of any modification to $_. Personally, I take it further than that, and try never to use the thing at all. The PBP suggests that modifying $_ can have unexpected side effects, as $_ is often an alias to some other [...]

Once in a while people ask me what open source projects could the contribute to? I can point them to any module on CPAN, but it can be a lot more fun to contribute to a project where the contribution...
Sinan Unur (Sinan): TDD is all well and good, but who's testing the tests?

While working on my patch to Module::Install, I happened to do another cpanoutdated | cpanm -v for my shiny new Perl 5.20.1 build. This pulled in Test::More, with another one of those file path interpolation into regex pattern problems:

Here are the r [...]

Sinan Unur (Sinan): Who put an extra CR in my CRLF? Fun with PerlIO layers

Some of the fa [...]
