I did not know about CTRL-A, so thanks for the tip. BTW on my gvim, I need CTRL-x to decrement.

Does this mean that callsame and callwith are reserved words? And wrap and unwrap reserved methods?

Thanks, I'll have to look at it closer, but still, it looks like you would need to clone a date object before doing any computation on it.

The module looks interesting though.

Note to self: add and subtract modify the calling object. Use clone if you just want to use the result.

So do not write this:

my $today      = DateTime->now;
my $yesterday  = $today->subtract( days => 1);# changes $today

Instead write this:

Attached to: Pure Perl HTML Parser on CPAN: HTML::Parser::Simple

OK, I'll have a look at it.

BTW, using XML::XPathEngine really means monkey-patching the XML/HTML module to make it behave enough like a DOM so the XPath engine can work on it. No XPath knowledge needed.

Attached to: Pure Perl HTML Parser on CPAN: HTML::Parser::Simple

In the Required Modules section you list Tree::DAG_Node, but in the FAQ just above you write that you use Tree::Simple.

Is the API stable enough that I can work on am HTML::Parser::Simple::XPath based on XML::XPathEngine? Or do you want to do this?

Attached to: YAPC::NA::2009 Pittsburgh, PA where are you?

I don't know about the conference itself, but I can at least explain one thing: the web site is probably hosted by the French Perl Mongueurs because it runs on Act, a system originally developped for YAPC::Europe in Paris, and that is now used by a lot of Perl conferences around the World.

If you have, you should mention it. Otherwise it looks a bit odd that your primary way of communicating with them is a blog post that they may or may not read (but that plenty of others will).
