Um. Me. Iain Truskett. Can be found as either Spoon or Koschei around the place, and as Braxiatel in rare circumstances. Um. Cool. Ta.

My perl svn repository [] if you want bits of code by me. Also see [] for most of them in action.

Quick update

[ #2617 ]

Ok. I now have a place in which to live with my gf. Soon, I hope to have a job with which to pay the rent =)

And I've uploaded WWW::Page::(Host|Author|Modified) 1.2.

Naturally, seconds after uploading one of them I found that two test files weren't in the MANIFEST, and thus not in the tar.gz. That's another feature that will have to go into my makemaker program.

makemaker is a cute program that goes through the modules, scripts and tests and writes appropriate Makefile.PL, README, t/doc.t and t/info.t files. Makes copious use of Module::Info. t/doc.t is good even if it only calls POD::Coverage, and t/info.t can be interesting if one makes a non-obvious syntax error.

README is, naturally, just a Pod::Text of the module file.

The important thing is that it automates a lot of the boring parts of writing a module.

Next, I give it a partner program, or an option, that goes and creates the appropriate directories and a stub module. Like that script somebody or other posted a while back.

  • I've heard MakeMaker called many, many things and 'cute' was not one of them...not even in the same sentence :)

    • I think it's a separate program. ExtUtils::MakeMaker is by no means cute. :)
      • yes, yes, I realise that...I was just taking advantage of the ambiguity. :)

        • =)

          The program was going to be called makemakemaker but maybe I should have settled for make3r?

          The real MM is semi-cute. Cute in that big scary way.
