Glen Hinkle (tempire): Mojo News: Mango

For those of you who haven’t been paying attention, the Mojolicious sister project, Mango (Non-blocking Mojo-based driver for MongoDB) has been deprecated. Frustrations with the direction of the MongoDB project have led to this difficult decision, bu [...]

David Farrell sillymoose: Implementing Did You Mean in Perl

Catching and handling undefined subroutine exceptions

Jesse Thompson (zjt): Troubles with Tarballs
The tar file (created by, I believe, ExtUtils::MakeMaker)  for the Log::Tiny CPAN distribution fails to extract on Solaris 10.

Using cpanminus I get this failure:

Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 053 Localization
The PBP tells us to localize changes to package variables. This is usually good sense, and prevents your changes from leaking out and messing with other things. I’ve mentioned this in another entry, because it was natural and fit there. If you [...]
Dave Cross (perlhacks): Upcoming Training

I have a few training courses coming up in the next few weeks which I thought you might be interested in. Firstly, the London Perl Workshop is on 8th November. I’ll be giving a two hour talk on “Perl in the Internet of Things“. As a [...]

Marc Chantreux (eiro): hacking on my blog again

as i have nothing to report to the perl community this year, nothing happened to "please ironman" (as i wrote in a previous post).

Things could change quickly (i'll be able to hack on sympa next week) so i just wrote a m4 powered kludge to be sure my [...]

Toby Inkster (tobyink): Book Report - October 2014
This month has been quite a busy one for me, so I haven't had much chance to work on my (in-progress) book. However, I have had some time to start work on a short talk for London Perl Workshop 2014...
Gabor Szabo (szabgab): S.C.O. cloning project - progress report
A week ago I mentioned that I've started to create a clone of search.cpan.org using the MetaCPAN API as back-end. I've also promised to record a series of screencasts explaining the process. Something, that can be very useful if you...
Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 052 Package Variables
The PBP suggests avoiding package variables. I almost can’t think of a reason to use one, so support this suggestion. A package global is just that – a global. You’re putting data in a place where it can be easily mucked with by any [...]

The Moment from The Age of Ultron Trailer that Crystallizes Why Marvel Studios Has A Woman Problem Following its leak online yesterday, Marvel Studios officially released its trailer for the Avenger’s sequel, “Age of Ultron”. You can watch the entire [...]
Doug Bell (preaction): Managing Boilerplate with Import::Base
Boilerplate is everything I hate about programming: Doing the same thing more than once Leaving clutter in every file Making it harder to change things in the future Eventually blindly copying without understanding (cargo-cult programming) In an effo [...]
Thomas Klausner (domm): Videos of Austrian Perl Workshop 2014
It's video-week! The videos from the Austrian Perl Workshop 2014 are online! There are a lot of interesting talks, most of them should also link to the slides. A big "Thank You!" goes to Vienna.pm ...
Martin Evans (MJEVANS): One liner in Perl to show you Nikon camera shutter count
There are online sites you can upload camera images to which tell you your camera's shutter count. Most didn't seem to work for me with my D7100 - I never looked in to why. This oneliner in Perl will do it.
perl -le "use Image::ExifTool qw(:Publi [...]
Generic Ultram: CVE-2014-7180
Electric Cloud ElectricCommander before 4.2.6 and 5.x before 5.0.3 uses world-writable permissions for (1) eccert.pl and (2) ecconfigure.pl, which allows local users to execute arbitrary Perl code by modifying these files.

Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 051 Lexical Variables
Global Variables; Just Say No. Well, the PBP’s a little more lenient than that, and actually easier to follow by suggesting, “Avoid using non-lexical variables.” and admitting there are some times you just need a package or global v [...]
Gabor Szabo (szabgab): Open source clone of search.cpan.org
I have started to write an open source clone of search.cpan.org. In case you are interested, see more details and links in that article. It is currently hosted here. The front-page is already there, but of course most of the...
Ricardo SIGNES (rjbs): I rewrote uni

For years, I've used Audrey Tang's uni program for stupid things. It helps you find Unicode characters:

$ uni ☺
263A ☺ WHITE SMILING FACE

# Only on Perl 5.14+
$ uni wry
1F63C 😼 CAT FACE WITH WRY SMILE

I've never been super happy with searching. All o [...]

Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 050 List Membership
The PBP suggests using the right, fast, tools to search for strings in lists. Who wouldn’t? It suggests using a table lookup to test for membership of strings – that’s a map to a hash, then a hash key search. If it isn’t a str [...]
