Wrong Rosettacode link, it should point to http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Pascal's_triangle#Perl_6.

Ponies: a running gag. Everybody wants one, but only Jifty comes with one. Let's best not get into the details of London.pm's weird fetishes

Pugs is written in Haskell. hugs is the name of a Haskell compiler, pugs is a Perl 6 compiler; my speculation is that name was chosen to be appealing to both camps, cute backronym notwithstanding.

[16:49] <daxim> what's going on here?
[16:50] <Zefram> fragmentation?
[16:50] <purl> fragmentation is interesting
[16:50] <Nicholas> no, Pad frames created for recursion are not released
[16:50] <Nicholas> the assumption is that you'll recurse again
[16:51] <Nicholas> patches not unwelcome to add the option to change this
[16:51] <Nicholas> but I've not thought totally about how to do it
[16:51] <Nicholas> you could, in theory, do it from XS
[16:51] <Nicholas> manually, on subrouties by passing in a reference to them
[16:52] <Zefram> keeping pads beyond N levels deep seems like a bad idea
[16:53] <Nicholas> actually, better I think is is "keeping pads N levels deeper than the level you just left"
[16:53] <Zefram> if you're recursing deep, you're spending enough time that the overhead of reallocating pads is probably not a worry
[16:53] <Zefram> yes, was just about to suggest that.  hysteresis
[16:53] <Nicholas> that would avoid penalising things that recurse and stay recursed
[16:53] <Zefram> yes

Have you seen http://perl6.org/documentation/? The Rosetta Code wiki comes close to what you want.

Contributors, take note: http://pleac.sourceforge.net/ is the obvious place to write a real cookbook.

One does not need to understand every detail of the whole system in order to change smaller parts.

The homepage of the open source version is http://www.socialtext.net/open/.

What do you need an admin for?

Spending time to modernise ST pays off immediately and will also be overall more beneficial in the long term compared with designing and coding a software from scratch.

How do you think about:

use warnings FATAL => 'all';

No one has commented on the necessity of empty import lists yet. How about a Critic policy that always requires an explicit import list (with configurable exceptions because the world's not perfect)? I certainly would like that.

Gald that it works for you. I have a different experience. I had to add three different repositories to be able to install shutter. Still then, starting it fails with:

Can't locate Gnome2.pm in @INC ...

I'm not going to report it because it's the authors' own damn fault for not using community practices. Had they packaged it the standard way then the chance for such a dumb mistake like neglecting to declare a dependency would have reduced dramatically. Another way how this sort of shoddy coding manifests in the source is the layout (the program is one big 250 kilobytes file), and the total lack of POD or really any sort of documentation in the package. It's Perl alright, but it's mediocre Perl, and IMO nothing to get excited about. Contrast with Xacobeo, which I consider a pretty good example of a Perl-Gtk2 app, actually installable from CPAN.

I the meantime I press PrtScr and it actually works - Ksnapshot comes up and lets me save my screenshot. For editing and adding effects a dedicated application is better anyway, I don't know what place most of those plug-ins have in a snapshot program.

Firefox was never good. :)

You liked Konqueror, perhaps you're happier nowadays with Rekonq or Arora rather than Chrome.
