You've set $perl to $HOME/src/perl but you never use it. I think those cd $HOME/src/perl lines should actually be cd $perl.

I bit the bullet today and finally got Moose installed.

I installed the prereqs one by one starting from the bottom of the list. Once I thought I had them all installed, I tried to install Moose and it couldn't find about five of the prereqs so I bailed.

I tried to install each of them again only to be told that four of the five were already installed. Class::MOP just did not want to install... Or so it seemed.

I traced the problem to the order of my include paths. Once that was fixed, Class::MOP and Moose installed cleanly.

BTW, the help still shows that you can have fine-grained control of your friends list even though you can't.

You need to go to Application Settings and click on the Edit Settings link for Groups (and all of the other apps as well). On the first tab "Profile" is your privacy settings for this app. Facebook reset them all back to wide open it would seem. I cannot seem to find a way to get fine-grained control over individual groups.

Pages do not have privacy controls now but I also do not know if they ever did. Shouldn't there be a Pages app?

The Friends list used to have privacy controls but now does not! This is huge. You see I'm a Mafia Don in the Mafia Wars game (pathetic, I know). Previously the friends in my Mafia Wars friends list could not see anything that wasn't public including my friends list!

  Journal: [Win32::]KeyState on 2009.12.05 14:03

Way back on July 9, 2003 I uploaded Win32::KeyState to CPAN but it was indexed as KeyState. No biggie.

It has not received any love since that day.

I know of one person other than myself who ever used it: Johan Lodin.

Is anyone still using it? Or has everyone moved on to Win32::GuiTest and/or Win32::Console?

I would like to either turn over the module to someone or remove it from CPAN.

I doubt that anyone is still using Win32::mIRC.

I doubt that anyone other than me ever used this module and I want to remove it from CPAN. (I do not care if it ends up in BackPAN or not.)

If anyone is still using Win32::mIRC, please send an email to mmusgrove@cpan.org and not the email address listed in the module documentation.

Thank you.

Stevan, I just don't have the bandwidth to deal with it right now. As soon as things slow down here to only a relatively hectic pace then I'll try it again.

I'd be happy with a decent object system that is not in core if it didn't require half of CPAN as prerequisites. Here at work, I have yet to be able to resolve all of the dependencies. As soon as I get a minute or two to spare (wishful thinking really), I might actually be able to track down the troublesome module(s).

You're welcome. Yes, it is very interesting. It also looks like it would be fairly easy to modify an existing rule set or create a new one.

There are a multitude of Vi[m] plugins that are written for specific languages. The matchit plugin works with Ada, ASP with VBS, Csh, DTD, Essbase, Fortran, HTML, JSP, LaTeX, Lua, Pascal, SGML, Shell, Tcsh, Vim, and XML. I use another plugin for SQL with it so that I can jump between IF and END IF, LOOP/END LOOP, etc using %.

Not sure about the exact line but I get the meaning. :)

Of course, I am one to talk. In my dreams, I'm the guy that is running or flying away from the villains: mysterious men in black, aliens, dinosaurs, whatever. Yeah, I have some weird dreams too.

If it were a real alien invasion, I'd be the guy throwing rotten food and shooting stagnant pond water out of a water gun because we already know that our primitive weapons are useless. ;)

Net::SSH2::SFTP may just work for you though because I forgot to mention that I was using it from Linux to connect to Windows (running Cygwin's sshd).

I ended up using Net::SFTP::Foreign because, for me, it just works.
