  • Very cool idea. I'm going to keep this handy and give you feedback if I come across something I think should be there.

    How about Test::NoWarnings? (not that there are any new test functions are are imported, but its still a something that might be of use to someone) :)



    • Cool, I'll add in Test::Warn and Test::NoWarnings. Thanks :)

    • It looks spiffy. I think the font is a little big and bulky, or something. Or, to be less precise but more honest, it doesn't look enough like The Best Quick Ref Ever [].

      I'd suggest adding Test::Exception, which is really quite lovely. (Reminder to self: cpanrate that.) Oh, and Test::Pod. If there's still lots of room, Test::Differences, Test::DatabaseRow, Test::LongString. I'm not sure which of those are really used, these days. If you go to two pages, you can be pretty liberal in what you include.

        I was trying to emulate the standard TeX-based reference cards I've seen in the past, but I was also trying to be a little artsy (with OpenOffice? riiight). However, you plopped the source of a TeX-based quick ref right in my lap.

        Thanks for the suggesions, I'll get crackin' :)

        (Hrm, use TeX, or be artsy..)

      • Okay, newer version uploaded. Tell me if you like this style more -- tidied code, equal-spaced columns. Download [] (PDF)
