  • FWIW, those tools in that column were written by John Gruber, purveyor of Mac opinion at Daring Fireball [daringfireball.net], former BBEdit documentor, and former MacPerl (now perl on Mac OS X) user.
    • The tools actually look pretty cool. There's a small mess in the code to figure out how their being run so they do the right thing for Bloxsom, Movable Type, or BBEdit, but it's not bad.
      • It’s also a search-and-replace-train rather than a proper parser, which makes it painfully sensitive to ordering and extremely prone to bugs in corner cases. But for making small modifications it’s OK, and the code is readable enough at the local level.
