in reply to Reciprocating to the perl community

I've had this problem for a while and decided, really, that one of the best things we can do to help the community is to literally help the community ... here ... on Perl Monks. If you come up with something cool, share it, upload it, whatever -- but there are few cool things that are created with the thought "I need to create the killer app" or "I need to do something cool" -- they just happen. Meanwhile, I'm still looking for divine inspiration, and someday, well, I'll find it -- until then, I'll just post.

[ambrus]: Corion: some of these stupid syntax highlighters assume that too. just look at the table in http://perldoc. perl.org/ functions/pack. html for example.
[haukex]: ..."yet" ;-) I haven't had to deal with Dist::Zilla yet but I've heard about how it's a big setup
[ambrus]: I really don't like automagic stuff. I'm happy when computers do exactly what I tell them, even if that means they sometimes do the wrong thing.
[ambrus]: And I don't much like syntax highlighters. If you need a syntax highlighter to understand your code, then your code is written unclear.
[ambrus]: And if you need a syntax highlighter to color parenthesis green and numbers black and letters blue, then you're using the wrong font.
[ambrus]: I have to tolerate syntax highlighters when other people use them, but I don't use them myself. And sorry for the rant.
