User Journal

We're starting our usual monthly DC Perl Mongers meeting a bit early this Tuesday (September 7th) to have a little pizza and celebrate Rakudo-Star! Arrive at 6:30pm at the Starbucks at 18th and K Street NW (call me, Brock, if you miss us and need to be let in, number on the website) if you want food. But feel free to wander in any time thereafter, we usually stay as late as 10:00pm. We'll swoop down and look for people at the normal 7:30pm time too

Thanks, this is a nicely commented way of doing mass-wrapping of stuff. I'll have to keep it in mind for other Evil Things to do...

I like option A. Because maybe I have some other top-level perl wrapper, so just having the wrapper doesn't make me feel all warm and fuzzy like. :)

Thanks for this example, I find it clarifies the run-loop conflict (or lack thereof) quite clearly.

Sounds like we need to get linkback's going (where oh where did 2003 go?)

Attached to: Why is such a pig?

I ran into this as a problem when using CPAN on my openmoko (Debian), which has only 128mb of ram. It only seemed to be a problem the first time I ran cpan, after that it seems better.

But for that first time I had to shut down everything (X-Windows, phone services, etc) to get it working.

Attached to: A new way to test (to me?)

I recently wrapped the java HtmlUnit library in Perl (see CPAN) -- it is kinda like WWW::Mechanize except with a fairly functional javascript engine. I don't know if it'll run the YUITest framework, but it might be worth a try. I hope to also wrap the Mechanize API and eventually have Test::WWW::Mechanize::HtmlUnit or similar.

If you're allowed to build things a bit from the ground up, you should play with Continuity. I've found it to be fantastic for almost direct ports from command line to web interfaces.
