Today's interesting stuff was
mainly yet more cases where the Perl code has
bar might (directly or indirectly)
return an empty list, or one item, or several; and, to make things
even more interesting, some of the values returned were arrayrefs, so
that I couldn't just say that I'll array-deref whatever values come
instead, the trouble is the subtleness of the problems that arise from
the apparently safe translation of
push @foo, bar(),
foo.push(bar()). In a day or two, I'll put it
all up at the usual place.
Then, as I was poking at My RSSs Of Interest, it occurred to me that my XSL tricks do improve things by expressing <lastBuildDate>Mon, 23 May 2005 08:57:22 GMT</lastBuildDate> as "Last feed update: Mon, 23 May 2005 08:57:22 GMT". But, it occurred to me that it's not exactly effortless for people to look at that and say "oh, that just updated", or "that was like ten hours ago"
Then I just got crazy and put some other data off into the title="..." attribute of the wrapper-element around the "ago" phrase, so that mousing over "9 hours ago" shows something like "Sun 22 May 2005 04:58:32 PM ADT (Mon, 23 May 2005 08:58:32 GMT)" (modulo your locale and timezone, etc).
