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 [...]

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 [...]
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 [...]

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

September featured two hot-topic discussions regarding CPAN Testers. 

The first was started by brian d foy, in a post about the effects of the development version of Test::More, which due to ongoing comment issues, were followed up separately. I see bo [...]
