Devel::Cover mini-hackathon

[ #30432 ]

Best Practical is sponsoring a Devel::Cover hackathon with Paul Johnson next Tuesday in London.

We've already got a long list and lots to do, but would love to hear about what you want from Devel::Cover.

If you are around London and would like to attend, please send mail to clkao DooT bestpractical.com. Note that the hackathon is during work hours, so you might need to make it a work-excuse to come!

In any case, we should be around #perl-qa during the hackathon, see you there!

UPDATE: Devel::Cover 0.56 is released! See what we've made during the hackathon!

  • I would like defined($obj) to not trigger $obj's "" overloading. In normal perl, defined($obj) won't call $obj's "" overloading. In Devel::Cover enhanced perl, defined($obj) will.

    I would also like to be able to mark some branches as "This should never happen."
  • This is something I've long wanted to do -- but, regrettably, I can't fly across the pond to participate.

    Devel::Cover's documentation is (in Paul's own words) "sparse" and could really stand some improvement. May I suggest that in preparation for the hackathon, people review the perl.qa mailing list and otherwise google to collate all of Paul's (excellent) responses to questions over the years.

  • I'll be joining the hackathon. I hope to squash bugs and improve features!
