Here doc? There doc!

[ #119 ]

I'm working on a piece for that was originally pegged for The Perl Journal. It's about here documents. I have found a lot of newbies don't grok this simple and powerful tool. As a bonus, I get to pull out a lot of goofy quotes in the article; so, it's got that going for it.

On the writing front, I believe that I am done the last of the big edits to the upcoming Programming Web Applications with XML-RPC. The book either is in production today, or will be tomorrow. It's been an amazing experience contributing to an O'Reilly book. There will be a follow-up XML-RPC for which I'm the sole author. I'll be working without a net (or a .NET, protocol-wise. [I slay me!]).

Also on the writing front, IBM has picked up a two part article on SOAP. It's got SOAP::Lite, HTML::TreeBuilder and CGI. What's not to like?

Here are some memes that are on my black list:

  • You are the weakest link. Goodbye!
  • All your base ...
  • Generation D
  • Digerati
  • "Voted off the island"
