This will be my final post here. use.perl has become less than useless, more like an embarrassment. For two weeks there were no frontpage news. This is not what those curious about Perl should find. The only real news were tucked away in a little side box and pointed to the journal entries. And the journal capabilities are a bit basic, to say the least. Technology has moved on.</p><p>I also encourage all use.perl journal authors to move to their own blogs. <a href="http://www.dagolden.com/">dagolden</a>++ has already done so. Diversity is good.</p><p>Now I'm not blogging regularly either, but I do have a separate <a href="http://hanekomu.at/blog">blog</a>. If and when I will blog again, it will be there, not here.</p><p>If I could delete my account here, I would.

They get slower the more levels you nest. For most applications this won't be a problem, but if you cache values in a hash, you might want to use as few levels of nesting as possible.</p><p>Read the <a href="http://hanekomu.at/blog/benchmarks/20090223-1638-benchmarks_nested_data_structures.html">details</a>.</p><p>By the way, I've enabled comments on my blog - let's see how that goes...</p> hanekomu 2009-02-23T15:51:47+00:00 journal Tree map for CPAN http://use.perl.org/~hanekomu/journal/38512?from=rss <p>This is a tree map for the minicpan mirror, containing only the latest versions of all CPAN distributions.

I've written blog posts every day, sometimes several times per day, but get hardly any visitors. I don't like the idea of link-spamming indiscriminately, so I've only announced new blog posts on use.perl and on Twitter.</p><p>Of course, it is entirely possible that the topics I write about are not very interesting. It has been suggested that I should write about things that would cause others to want to link to my blog. Well, I don't have any intentions of sucking up to anybody just to get visitors. I had hoped to write about things I encountered along the way and that I found interesting. I didn't merely want to write about my own modules but also about other sorts of things, especially interesting CPAN modules I've found, or news from the Perl world in Japan and Korea. So I thought of the blog as a community service rather than a wank.</p><p>Andy Lester wrote an article in his Perl Buzz blog: <a href="http://perlbuzz.com/2008/05/perl-decentralize-diversify-colonize.html">Perl must decentralize, diversify and colonize</a>. I agree. Schwern said pretty much the same thing in his "Perl is unDead" talk at YAPC::Asia 2008.</p><p>However, saying that there should be more Perl sites is good, but then you should help in driving traffic to those sites as well.</p><p>For example - and this is not meant to single out one blogger - Perl Buzz links to the official perl pages, and the official perl pages link to Perl Buzz. I have asked for my blog to be included in planet.perl.org, but didn't even get a response. So the Perl in-crowd link gets all chummy and link to each other and write lots about their own blogs and their own modules, but the small sites are left to fend for themselves.</p><p>Put your money where your mouth is.</p><p>To be clear, I don't complain about not having thousands of visitors; rather I am disappointed in the nonchalant way in which well-known people who attract lots of visitors from outside the active Perl community proclaim that there must be more Perl sites, but when they do appear, leave them out in the cold.</p><p>Nor do I want to single out a specific prolific blogger. I am appealing to all the top Perl bloggers.</p><p>Nor do I expect, after having complained about the situation, to have lots of links to my blog suddenly spring up - I am disillusioned to the point where I don't want to continue my blog anymore. Rather, I wanted to highlight a bigger problem.</p><p>There are many interesting things happening in the Perl world. Please start writing about them, and start to interact with other Perl blogs.</p> hanekomu 2008-09-20T08:43:07+00:00 journal Clean-up http://use.perl.org/~hanekomu/journal/37481?from=rss <p>I've pushed out the final four ideas for blog posts onto my <a href="http://hanekomu.at/blog">Perl blog</a>.

It contains impressions I brought back from YAPC::Asia 2008. Too many people don't know anything about asian perl mongers. That's a shame because there are some really interesting developments going on there.

It even looks a bit like some thing with antlers. Here is the JEDict definition:</p><p>&#31622; [&#12408;&#12425;: HERA] spatula<br>&#31622;&#40575; [&#12408;&#12425;&#12376;&#12363;: HERAJIKA] (uk) moose, elk</p><p>So a moose is an animal with a spatula on its head? Larry said that &#31622; could also mean "comb", so a moose is an animal with a comb on its head. But I digress.</p><p>I've made a simple proof-of-concept distribution. The main module's code basically is:</p><p> &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; use utf8;<br> &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; package &#31622;;<br> &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; 1;</p><p>'perl Makefile.PL', 'make', 'make test' and 'make dist' all worked well. It produced a tarball: &#31622;.tar.gz. So far, so good.</p><p>Then I've tried to upload the tarball to cpan:</p><p> &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; $ cpan-upload-http &#31622;.tar.gz</p><p>That also gave no error message. So I waited for the emails from PAUSE. Here is the first one:</p><p>&gt; Subject: Notification from PAUSE<br>&gt;<br>&gt; MARCEL (Marcel Gr&#252;nauer == hanekomu (&#36339;&#12397;&#36796;&#12416;)) visited the PAUSE and<br>&gt; requested an upload into his/her directory.

Therefore, not all hooks imaginable have been added, only the ones to make this demo work. If you want more hooks or if the current hooks don't work for you, let me know.</p> hanekomu 2008-04-17T20:45:59+00:00 journal YAPC::Asia ni ikimasu http://use.perl.org/~hanekomu/journal/35696?from=rss <p>I've <a href="http://conferences.yapcasia.org/ya2008/user/2277">registered</a> for the YAPC::Asia, so the next thing to do is to find a flight and a hotel.</p> hanekomu 2008-02-19T14:55:56+00:00 journal hanekomu v4.0 http://use.perl.org/~hanekomu/journal/35693?from=rss <p>Unbelievable, I turned 40 today. Because the memorable thing happened at 0:40am local time 40 years ago, I thought I'd stay up last night and finish watching <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennou_Coil">Dennou Coil</a>. Ended up watching 16 episodes (11-26) and going to bed at 2:40, knowing I'd have to get up at 7:30. Normally this wouldn't be worth mentioning, but with advanced age there seems to be a greater need of sleep...</p><p>Getting up wasn't too bad, though, as I had time to ponder the cool things that happened in Dennou Coil.</p><p>ObReflection: Being 40 doesn't feel like what I expected it to feel like when I was 20. Even 50-60 year olds generally don't seem to be as old as they seemed to me 30 years ago. Ok, back then I was a child and had a different concept of time, but still... Extended lifespan and better medicine certainly has something to do with it as well.</p><p>I am wondering, though, whether more days are behind me than lie before me...</p> hanekomu 2008-02-19T09:02:22+00:00 journal
