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 [...]
Generic Ultram: CVE-2012-5697
The btinstall installation script in Bulb Security Smartphone Pentest Framework (SPF) before 0.1.3 uses weak permissions (777) for all files in the frameworkgui/ directory, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information or inject arbitrary [...]
Andreas K. Hüttel (dilfridge): How do I run ~arch Perl on a stable Gentoo system?
Here's a small piece of advice for all who want to upgrade their Perl to the very newest available, but still keep running an otherwise stable Gentoo installation: These three lines are exactly what needs to go into /etc/portage/package.keywords:

kd: A fast pragmatic test runner
After breaking the build twice in the space of a week for more or less the same reason each time, I figured that my team needed a continuous integration rig, and we needed it now. For web application stuff it's...
CPAN Testers: CPAN Testers Summary - September 2014 - Fire of Unknown Origin

September featured two hot-topic discussions regarding CPAN Testers.

Alberto Simões (ambs): Language Identification, Neural Networks and Perl
I will not write much, but just would like to let you know there is a new Perl module for Language Identification (Lingua::Identifier). It uses a neural network for the task (read this for details), with Math::Matrix::MaybeGSL, that will use...

perlcodesample: gccの最適化オプションを指定する | Perl XS 入門
 XSでgccの最適化オプションを指定するにはMakefile.PLの中のWriteMakefileのオプションとして、OPTIMIZEオプションを指定します。 OPTIMIZE => ’-O3’  -O3を指定すると、一番強い最適化が行われるようです。  以下はOPTIMIZEオプションを使ったサンプルです。 use strict; use warnings; use ExtUtils::MakeMaker; WriteMakefile( NAME => ’Rstats’, AUT ...
Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 049 Lists
This best practice is a simple suggestion: Put every raw list in parenthesis. It’s good.The book provides an example of why this is important. There’s at least one other case that bit me at the office: This changed, so that qw no longer w [...]

Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 048 Low-Precedence Operators
The best practice is not to mix low and high precedence boolean operators. This is both good and bad, but following the rule can save your sanity. The problem with mixing the low precedence operators – the nice ones that are words – and t [...]
