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

Stupid Error

[ #34189 ]

I hate it when I make silly mistakes like this:

my $pivot_date = DateTime->new(
    year  => 2006,
    month => 08,
    day   => 01,

I should know better than that. I was staring at the MySQL datetime format too much :)

Update: In retrospect, I should have entitled this post "Zero errors!"

  • Coincidentally, I made that exact error in ruby yesterday. Fortunately, '8' is not a valid octal digit so vim's syntax highlighting alerted me to a problem before I even tried to run it.
  • vim i_ctrl-a will only interpret a leading-zero number as octal if there are only octal digits in it. That is why I only write code in the Vim scripting language. No bugs possible!
