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 [] modules [] to CPAN, giving talks [], and use of the Trelane nick on for endless procrastination. Doctors are still seeking a cure.

Now avalible worldwide!

[ #3570 ]
Hey! So I got a PAUSEID. I'm now an official CPAN author, meaning my software now being mirrored worldwide! How cool is that.

Better remember to spellcheck the documentation in the future then.

Oh that reminds me. I wondering if anyone has a way to get emacs (that can tell what's pod and not) to spellcheck just the non code pod in a file.

Anyway, I uploaded Test::Builder::Tester. This is exactly the same as the version on my website. There's a few other modules I've got that I should get round to uploading, but I haven't touched them in ages and I'd better check that they work properly before I upload them...expect more later.

I've also been playing with the Template Toolkit a bit recently. I've been patching the XML plugins to allow some better mapping of XML elements to VIEWS, in particular making the recursion of rendering work as they should. I've patched the XML::XPath plugin and now I just need to do the same for the XML::DOM plugin. While I'm doing this I'm working on some documentation to explain how you can use the Template Toolkit to easily render out XML. The Template Toolkit has it's own kooky Template / POD hybrid system for documentation. It's fun.

I also got a mad idea in my head about building a Template::Plugin::Filter module that allows you to easily add filters to the context from within a plugin. I coded it, wrote the documentation, made the tests. Published it to the template list to find out that abw had already written a module of the same name that did almost the same thing that had been integrated into a previous developer release. Arrrgh! I'll try and integrate the two to take the advantages of both.

Oh, and I've got to write slides for my talk "Building Testing Tools with Test::Builder" for the technical meeting on Thursday. Panic!

> dipsy, my fun todo?
<dipsy> trelane, your fun todo is install slash on intranet server, gtk wrapper for sudo, Test::GD, GD::TextImage, Pod::POM Testing or add things to grubstreet, read the jabber book or upload slides or patch T::P::XML::DOM, write documentation for TT and XML, write talk (and make slides) or makepm script

  • Pod::Spell! Pod::Spell! Pod::Spell!
  • I'm interested in seeing those slides. (Since I assembled Test::Builder, I feel a little guilty about *not* writing something along those lines myself.)
  • I don't know what TT2 does with XML::DOM in that plugin, but you might want to look at other DOM implementations instead. XML::DOM is aging, and is only a DOM1 implementation. It's also slow and memory intensive. XML::LibXML would probably be a better choice.

    Also, you might want to spellcheck those journal titles ;-)
