Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 051 Lexical Variables

# 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 [...]

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

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 ...
