I am not sure when I first saw Perl.

in reply to How long have you been using Perl?

But it's been about 5 years or so. Not that I have been all that productive with it. I need ideas on stuff to do with Perl.

    need ideas on stuff to do with Perl.

    Write a full-featured operating system and GUI and suite of applications entirely in Perl -- something complete enough to replace Linux and Gnome. I'll help you beta test it for free. HTH.HAND

    ;$;=sub{$/};@;=map{my($a,$b)=($_,$;);$;=sub{$a.$b->()}} split//,".rekcah lreP rehtona tsuJ";$\=$;[-1]->();print
      I think that I'll pass on that and go about doing some EXIF tag parsing.

[choroba]: The problem was bigger, as the test tried to call a method that didn't exist anymore
[marinersk]: :: ducking ::
[choroba]: because, someone renamed the method, but didn't notice it was used in the test, as the test was skipped
[marinersk]: Well, if the method doesn't exist, it would be hard to pass the test.
[choroba]: later, someone removed the new method, as all its usage places were safe, but didn't notice the test still used the old name
[choroba]: fortunately, it wasn't that hard to replace the method and fix a few remaining failures due to the changes we did to the codebase over the years
[marinersk]: choroba Sounds like a process improvement opportunity; tests may not all need to be run, but they should all be compiled with perl -c before check-in/promotion happens.
[choroba]: so, now I have the test, so I can start making changes in the code. Back to the original ticket, yay!
[marinersk]: I definitely love it when my $current_taask=& taskPop(); if ($current_task eq $original_task) { } is true.
[marinersk]: s/taask/task/g;
