Flavio Poletti (polettix): Commented on Regex /m modifier bug in Perl 5.8.8 and older in E. Choroba

The problem is that qr{} has a bug in older perls in that it does not propagate the modifiers when they are set outside (e.g. mxs in qr{/whatever}mxs). See here about this.

My personal "mental discipline" is to never use regexp modifiers outside, but [...]

Flavio Poletti (polettix): Commented on CPAN Testers needs our help in NeilB

One thing that I'd suggest to do as soon as possible is to add the link to the EPO page inside the CPAN Testers page. Anyone hitting there has absolutely no clue on how to do a donation, and it should be a quick, easy thing to do.

Booking.com dev blog: Perl IntelliJ Plugin - Herd your code

Development and navigation in a large codebase can prove quite the challenge. A common tool when tackling such a large codebase is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Unfortunately, the main programming language at Booking.com, Perl, has lim [...]

JT Smith: Posted Complicated joins with DBIx::Class to JT Smith
DBIx::Class is a great way to hide database interactions in your Perl classes. However, something that you might find easy in normal DBI queries can seem hard in DBIx::Class, because you lack direct access to the SQL. Take for example...
Generic Ultram: CVE-2015-8853 (fedora, perl)
The (1) S_reghop3, (2) S_reghop4, and (3) S_reghopmaybe3 functions in regexec.c in Perl before 5.24.0 allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via crafted utf-8 data, as demonstrated by "a\x80."
Ricardo Signes (rjbs): HTML::MasonX::Free

Who's ready to live in the past? Me!

Every time I try to like some other templating system in Perl, I fail. The only one I sort of like is Mason. No, no, not Mason 2. I don't like that. I like HTML::Mason. You know, Mason 1.

It has about a zillion prob [...]

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 [...]
Michael Daum: WebDAV gets data views
The WebDAV support for Foswiki took another leap forward this morning, when we finished development of a new FilesysVirtualPlugin which supports different views for topics. This makes Foswiki topic content much more accessible to a wider range of too [...]
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

We regularly encounter lists of constants. Quick examples are HTTP status codes, Virtual Key Codes, lists of error codes and many many more. Regardless of the language [...]

Thank you for sharing your slides, they seem very promising!

If you're interested into using Travis-CI for your Perl projects, here's a few pointers that you should not miss: Graham Knop's article introducing the helpers; fREW's article on using it, although the specific setup refers to a previous repository t [...]
perlancar: Using monotoning versioning in Perl
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 [...]
