  Comment: Where to get line noise? (Score 1) on 2010.06.14 15:13

Attached to: Perl and line noise: an objective comparison
Used to be that you'd get line noise when using a modem to get data over a voice line. Now, most people get their voice over a data line. I haven't seen a modem used in the wild in over a decade. Kids today don't even have a concept of line noise.

Attached to: Modern Perl
I too run into the class confusion when terms such as "Modern" come up. To me, the Moderns were the ones who came to creative blossom between the World Wars. What's the meaning of the Modern practices for a Post-Modern language?

I'd suggest "Contemporary". But if people listened to me, they wouldn't call it "Classical Music", either.

AnyEvent::XMPP only installs if you go notest install with CPAN. Not preferable.

I shouldn't have trusted it to do preformatted text. Should've put breaks.

AnyEvent::XMPP

Try the command

i /AnyEvent::XMPP/

to find objects with matching identifiers.
CPAN: Time::HiRes loaded ok (v1.9711)
jacoby@oz:~/Mount/lab/web$

Ah, that's better.

Otherwise, a very helpful comment, and I thank you.

I've got it in my mind that I want to be able to code some Jabber/XMPP stuff. Using Net::XMPP, I was able to get into sending stuff, but not really deal with the presence detection aspects. I looked at Net::XMPP2, but that is marked as depricated in favor of AnyEvent::XMPP. But if AnyEvent::XMPP exists, CPAN hasn't heard of it.

If you're going to program for Jabber with Perl, what modules do you use?
