Mark Fowler has never been the same since he was elected leader of the London Perl Mongers. The strain manifests itself mainly in releasing various [cpan.org] modules [cpan.org] to CPAN, giving talks [2shortplanks.com], and use of the Trelane nick on #london.pm for endless procrastination. Doctors are still seeking a cure.

New Year Resolutions

[ #16576 ]
It's the new year, and hence time for resolutions.

Over the last three months or so I've been really busy, and hence haven't been posting here. Since then I've organised countless London.pm things, written another year of the advent calendar and worked on a giant Perl project at work which has exposed me to a whole load of really cool Perl stuff. I probably should have mentioned that here.

I should write more. I should write every day. Of course, I won't (believe it or not I actually do have the odd day where I don't even touch a computer.) But I'll try. Most of this will be mundane stuff, but hopefully it'll be mundane stuff that I'll learn/do so you don't have to.

Today's mundane thing learned:

  use Config qw(myconfig);
  print myconfig;

This prints the same thing that perl -V prints. It's great for sticking in a noddy cgi that you can upload to a webserver to tell you what version of perl you've got installed. This works on 5.00405, so it works pretty much anywhere.

One day down, three hundred and sixty four to do.
