Got a few extra minutes to review something?

[ #20558 ]
I'm part of the 70% YAPC:EU speakers that still haven't provided "material for the proceedings" (and yes, I'm ashamed).

I finished an article (if you may call it an article) on special variables and command line switches yesterday.

I am looking for one or two people to read it and give me some feedback... anyone willing to volunteer? :-| I would be very grateful, as I wrote this with very little time on my hands and I'm afraid I might have some mistakes and such that may have escaped my sleepy eyes, yesterday :-)

I warn you right now it's scientific, but not a scientific paper... :-)

Send me mail to jac [at] if you're interested. Thanks :-)

Loading... please wait.
  • Why not. Send it in
    • Sent :-) Thanks for your time :-)
      • I didn't get anything. Did you send it to the Yahoo account ? (maybe it was spam filtered ?!?!)
        • Yes, I sent it to the Yahoo account... yes, spam filtering is a possibility... :-|

          Nevertheless, here [] it is :-)

          • Very nice read. It was difficult to understand what it's about from the start, but eventually I got it. A fresh attitute indeed. Pity that $_ itself isn't described - it's one of the more important variables out there...

            I saw no obvious problems except for a few very minor English flops, but I'm not the definite authority on that. You should also get a native English speaker (not necessary a JAPH) to take a look.

            • Thanks for your time, spur :-)

              I guess you're right... $_ should be more described... :-|

              Any volunteers to check on my English? :-|
            • I think I figured it out :-)

              The article has now a subtitle wich includes "vol 1"

              In a near future (I hope), I will be writting "vol 0", where I'll describe $_ :-)

              I guess that's the only way to go around with it right now :-)
