  • I work with WebGUI, a CMS written totally in perl. Mainly I write tests,
    documentation and fix bugs, but I sometimes work on features and other things.

    As a test, I wrote a very hacky perl parser to validate internationalized
    label lookups in the code. It was easier than calling every single page
    and parsing it for output. The test worked well, but didn't handle nested
    scopes very well.

    Then, I converted it over to Perl::Critic. Currently, it's about 3X slower
    than my old parser and has the same problems with nested scopes. I need
    to revisit it and add the nested scope handling.
