Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

CPAN Shenanigans

[ #17126 ]

Today I just deleted a bunch of old files from the CPAN. Hopefully they'll be gone soon. What finally prompted me to get off my *ss and do that was my accidentally uploading the wrong file to the CPAN. Oops.

Speaking of the CPAN, one Daniel Ashbrook sent me a small patch for AI::NeuralNet::Simple which has been applied and the .02 version should be available shortly. I've also updated the pod slightly and exposed the learning rate so programmers can fine-tune networks. There's still so much to do on that module, though.

And speaking of that module, I've discovered a curious thing which you'll notice in the C code:

float _get_learn_rate(int dummy)
{
    return network.learn_rate;
}

Apparently, _get_learn_rate(void) can't be found by Perl when using Inline::C, but giving it a useless argument works fine. I really should check to see if this is a known issue.
