  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

  • By far the best template system available for Perl. You can pass hash references from your script to the template, and iterate through arrays or hashes, etc. also has macros, which I have yet to use.
  • I used HTML::Template for two years and greatly enjoyed the switch from that to Template::Toolkit. T::T makes templating dead simple, plus powerful features are available when you dig a little deeper.

    Template::Toolkit makes it blindingly easy to format data structures -- wanna mark up that RSS feed? Just pass an XML::RSS object to the process() method and instantly do things like [% FOREACH item = items %]<li>[% item.title %]</li>[% END %] -- check out "How to Avoid Writing Code" []

  • does anyone use XSLT anymore? I think it's a great combo with perl
