  • I've been meaning to add a review of perlguts to perltodo.pod. There have been quite a few refactorings, new bits of API, and new macros meant to make life easier for Perl 5.10. This is something actual that a lot of people need to look into and make suggestions on.
  • There really must be some award for the incredible work you've done on the regexp engine. For a long time it was feared that the only person left who could hack on it was Ilya Zakharevich (well, that was my fear) and you've really taken up the banner and pushed perl's regexp implementation into fantastic new territories. I can't wait for perl 5.10 now!
    • You know its comments like this one that really get me motivated. Often in the p5p circles its hard to tell how ones work is received. Everybody is so experienced (and in some ways jaded....) that they tend not to give to feedback like this. So hearing you say this really warms my heart. Thank you, and I'm pleased that you like it.

      • I'm late to this journal comment -- but I agree with Matt. This is really cool code, and I hope we can use it effectively in Spamassassin; I'm certainly trying ;)
      • I wonder if they're jealous of the time and energy you have to do such work. I certainly am, but I look forward to using it.

  • That sounds pretty awesome. How doe PCRE compare?
