in reply to Programming and math

My opinion is a good foundation in mathematics is key is being succesful with computer programming languages, and having some computer science classes under your belt can't hurt. On the other hand though I do have friends that have learned Perl, Java, C++, and HTML with only a high school diploma. With the internet the way it is today alot more people are now teaching themselves programming skills and mathematics. In my opinion, based upon experience and connections, I would say that it all comes down to determination, and focus. Many tutorials are available on the net to learn almost any programming languages out there, whether it be SSL, AppleScript, PHP, or Fortran. So as long as you know some basic calculus that you get in high school you can get a good basic knowledge of how most programming languages work._____________________ 01101111 01010010 01100111

[ambrus]: Corion: ah, so you want a library that parses HTTP, and you want to do the IO yourself, and don't want a full AnyEvent wrapper.
[ambrus]: Corion: I think I parsed a HTTP header from a string with LWP once. You can definitely use that to create a HTTP message too. The problme is
[ambrus]: that if you do that, you'd have to find where each HTTP response ends, which is nontrivial if you want persistent connections (essential for performance if you have small requests).
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, ideally an API that I feed the incoming data piece by piece and that I can ask "is that response done" and "what should I do next" and "please construct the appropriate redirect for me"
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, ideally the module would do all that nasty stuff for me and give me a way to ask it what the current situation is
[ambrus]: Corion: you could also consider using some wrapper over the multi interface of curl, I think Net::Curl might be a good one, since implementing enough of what it expects from the event loop might be easier than a full AnyEvent interface.
[ambrus]: Corion: you could also consider using IO::Async and its POE driver and some HTTP module for it, but I don't know if that would solve your problems with AnyEvent+POE
[ambrus]: Corion: wait, you didn't say POE. You said Prima, let me look up what that is.
[ambrus]: Corion: have you considered just writing an AnyEvent integration for that thing?
[ambrus]: Or perhaps pushing schmorp to write one?
