BD & Business::vCard

[ #11850 ]
Slightly late write up of my Birthday...

It was my Birthday last weekend.. and I got older. Had a BBQ - of course on the one day in 2 weeks that it was actually cold and not magically sunny.

There was much drinking and eating and people getting to know each other (this is the first party I've had in our new house - the old one being a large shoe box).

I would just like to point out that being given the bumps at ages 28 is an odd experience, and my bruises are just about healed! I do however think that I came of better than the 10 people who decided to do it. I thought they were about to give up after number 12, but to get 'em credit they carried on!

I managed to get a nasty cold the day after and have been off ill since (I hate being ill, especially when looking at a screen hurts your eyes!).

In perl related news I'm working on Business::vCard feed back welcome, more work still to be done before it's ready for CPAN but it's almost there.

  • Check out Net::vCard - I have debated this module for a couple of months - and finally got off my butt and uploaded it to this space. Business::vCard was one of the candidate names but got nixed by the folks on Perl Module Authors mailing list. Net::vCard was the best alternative I came up with given it parallels Net::iCal which is its big cousin. It too is incomplete but functions for what I need. :)
  • A quick search on CPAN uncovers:
    • Net::vCard - Read and write vCard files (RFC 2426)
    • XML::SAXDriver::vCard - generate SAX2 events for vCard 3.0

    I suggest you check them out before uploading to CPAN.

    • Arrrgg!!!

      I had seen XML::SAXDriver::vCard and taked with the author, it works very differently.

      As for Net::vCard it wasn't there when I started the module a few weeks ago. I'll contact jjott to see if we can do some colabaration.
