Happy CPAN Day. If you weren't aware last month, Neil Bowers took on a promotion of the first CPAN Day. A day to celebrate the birth of CPAN. Although the concept of CPAN started before 16th August 1995, that was the day that the first true upload oc [...]

Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 040 Multiline Strings
The PBP suggests breaking your strings on any embedded newlines so they look in code something like they’ll look when output. It’s not a bad idea, and I generally support it. I don’t find it as useful as it could be, because things [...]
NAP Tech Blog: Releasing NAP::policy to the world

Dave Jacoby (/var/log/rant): Leveraging the Forecast.io API
A while ago, I got an API key for Forecast.io, with the intention of writing something that takes a look at the day to say whether I could bike to work without getting weathered on. I have not written that, and I certainly haven't started biking to w [...]
Peter Rabbitson (ribasushi): How does <email>@cpan.org work?
In the recent year I notice more and more instances that mail to ribasushi@cpan.org is silently swallowed. I know this because I communicate with the senders through other channels, and I've even received forwards of copies of emails which as...

Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 039 Long Numbers
Great big numbers full of digits are hard to read and be sure they’re right, so the PBP suggest using the magic underscore in the numbers to spread them out and make them more readable. And it is true, it helps: Can you afford it? Apparently no [...]
Sinan Unur (Sinan): Scraping PDF documents without losing your sanity

The epiphany came when I was trying to extract usable information from a bunch of documents.

Some people insist on distributing essential information in PDF format making it very hard to make use of said information.

Now, I have never really made it pa [...]

Chris Travers: Math and SQL Part 6: The Problem with NULLs
This will be the final installment on Math and SQL and will cover the problem with NULLs.  NULL handling is probably the most poorly thought-out feature of SQL and is inconsistent generally with the relational model.  Worse, a clear mathema [...]

Perl TV: Growing Perl Developers (English 51:23)

Jeffrey Kegler: Parsing: a timeline
[Cross-posted by invitation from its home on the Ocean of Awareness blog.] 1960: The ALGOL 60 spec comes out. It specifies, for the first time, a block structured language. The ALGOL committee is well aware that nobody knows how to parse such a langu [...]
Louis Erickson (laufeyjarson): PBP: 038 Leading Zeroes
Best Practice: Don’t pad decimal numbers with leading zeroes. In my mind, this isn’t a best practice. It’s an error. You can’t pad decimal numbers with leading zeroes – they turn into octal numbers and are wrong. The boo [...]
